HOPE FOUNDATION

In such emergencies one always wonders who to give aid to and be sure that it is not misused. This, in fact, holds most of us back from giving to charity. As of today, Vaishna and I have linked up with an NGO called "HOPE FOUNDATION". You can check them out on the net. They have their own teams of volunteers (other people like us) in Cuddalore and Nagapattinam, running relief camps that are providing food, medical facilities and material aid. These teams are being fed from Chennai. Hence the mtrl is going directly to the affected people. We have stepped in to provide transport facilities to carry the mtrl from Chennai to the camps.

There is a surfeit of old clothes. So, we would like to tell you what exactly is urgently needed now:

(a) Cooked food packets (for sending directly) or rice, dal etc for Hope Foundation to cook and send.
(b) Medicines.
(c) Drinking water.
(d) Bed sheets.
(e) Warm clothes.
(f) Cash.
(g) Vehicles for transporting aid
(h) Housing material like tarpaulin etc
(i) Water purification tablets
(j) Metal utensils
(k) Water storage vessels (plastic pots etc.)

Please send any money by DD in favour of 'Hope Foundation'.

The material aid can be sent to:Hope Foundation
H 110/2, 7th Avenue
Besant Nagar
Chennai - 600 090
Ph: 044 24463394
24463403
