Last month, many states of India were impacted due to heavy rains. Rajasthan and Gujarat were amongst the states which were badly affected by floods. People living in villages suffered the most due to heavy rains. Transportation to many villages had been cut off. In fact, a lot of villages were entirely immersed in water due to the heavy rains. Adarsh Charitable Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Adarsh Credit understood this tough situation very well and extended its support to the flood victims.
The volunteers of Adarsh Charitable Foundation made it their mission to make life easier for the flood victims. These volunteers were constantly providing relief to the regions affected by flood in Rajasthan and Gujarat. They not only supplied food to the flood victims, but also provided them with medical kits. They made sure that there was no shortage of relief materials to the flood affected people.
A CSR initiative by Adarsh Credit
Mr. Rahul Modi, Managing Director, Adarsh Credit Co-operative Society Ltd. was in constant touch with the volunteers of Adarsh Charitable Foundation and made sure that all the supplies reached the affected regions as planned. Adarsh Charitable Foundation also hired chartered helicopters to dispatch food packets to the flood affected regions of Sirohi and Jalore. Flood victims in these regions could not even find clean drinking water. However, the volunteers supplied clean drinking water to them along with food packets and medical kits.
Adarsh Charitable Foundation distributed:
- 25,000 food kits in Sirohi
