The rains that shook the City of Chennai, sometime during the first week of December last year is one event that won’t fade away from our minds for a long time. Said to have broken down the overall record in a century, Chennai City experienced the worst of floods that was totally unanticipated. Thousands were left homeless and the rest recorded as missing or declared dead. This was by-far the worst phase that Chennai was put through in the year 2015.
Upon nature having showcased its deadly side, Humanity simply remained untouched. Thanks to all those who stepped in and helped to Shape the city and bring it back to its pre-monsoon condition.
It is with pride that we boast of our involvement in rescue and rehabilitation efforts that our team of volunteers carried out across several regions of Chennai. We stood for a noble cause when tough times demanded, learning that humanity is the only thing that stays untouched even if it were the end of the world.
On the 5th of December, in Kadaperi, Tambaram, the event extended its helping hand to 150 families, providing them with essential supplies like lunch, bedsheets, water, dinner, biscuits, antibiotics, toothpaste, and toothbrushes.
Continuing the spirit of generosity, the Be Proud team moved to Mudichur on the 6th of December, where 100 families were touched by their kindness, receiving milk, bedsheets, biscuits, antibiotics, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and mosquito coils.
On the 7th of December, the Be Proud initiative spread its wings to Manimangalam and Lakshmi Nagar, benefitting 150 families in each location. The families were provided with much-needed items such as biscuits, bread, lunch, water, soap, antibiotics, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and mosquito coils, adding comfort and relief to their lives.
The collective effort of Be Proud and the immense support from the community made these events truly memorable, reflecting the power of compassion and solidarity in making a positive impact on the lives of those in need.
