04 Jun Grade 4 Students of SNIS Raised Funds for Flood & Cyclone Affected People
As part of extending a helping hand to the people affected by the disastrous Kerala floods and the Orissa cyclone, grade 4 students of SNIS raised funds and donated money and supplies to them, through an NGO called Goonj.
From 8 August 2018 to about 11 days thereafter, severe floods affected the south Indian state of Kerala, due to unusually high rainfall during the monsoon season. It is said to be the worst flood in Kerala in nearly a century. The floods caused the death of over 483 people and left 14 missing. Over 11 days of tempestuous rainfall has left a lot of people in Kerala homeless and made them lose all their belongings. The entire nation came together during this time to help the affected people and collected as many supplies and money as possible to distribute to them. At SNIS, we considered this as much our responsibility as the rest of the nation’s to hold hands and contribute our share to the people of Kerala.
As part of creating awareness and giving back to the community, students prepared PPT/skit and posters explaining about Kerala flood and its impact. They presented this information to the students of other grades and raised donations for the people affected in the floods that are still in the recovery stage.
