Relief work is an ongoing and swiftly changing process. Ground situations are changing and so are requirements - immediate and long term. The focus has to be clear that the RIGHT KIND OF AID REACHES THE RIGHT PEOPLE AT THE RIGHT TIME!

Hence, at this moment a few thing need to be made clear:

a] There are huge piles of clothing that have been collected. NO MORE CLOTHES ARE REQUIRED AT THIS TIME.

b] Money in the form of cheque / demand draft contributions is an URGENT need. The payment could be made favouring : 'Indian Red Cross Society' and dropped at Red Cross office, Atur Sangtani Red Cross House, M.G.Road, Pune 411 001 OR with Ms.Vijaya Moorthy at 3 Silver Classic Apartments, S.R.P.F.Road, Wanowrie, Pune 411 040. You can contact Pune phone nos. 2613 0031 / cell no.98220 04752 for contributions. Red Cross donations are exempted under Sec.80-G of the Income Tax Act. Please mention your name /address/phone no. on a slip of paper attached to your DD/cheque.

c] MAITRI, an NGO, working in the affected areas of Tamil Nadu is sending out food items like rice, dal, mineral water bottles and dry milk powder eg.Amulya (1 kg.packs) on 7th January. Contributions of this nature can be made. Please contact Ms. Vinita Tatke at mobile no.94225 21702 OR vinitat@vsnl.com.

d] Doctors / psychologists ( only ) who can speak MALAYALAM are required for the Red Cross team to be sent out to affected areas of Kerala for relief work. Contact Prof.R V Kulkarni at phone no. 2613 0331 / Red Cross office 2613 0031 / Vijaya Moorthy at vmoorthy@rediffmail.com.
