CYCLONE MICHAUNG RELIEF WORK (December 3 and 4, 2023)

Prolonged and intense rainfall in Chennai caused widespread waterlogging in many parts of the city. The continuous downpour led to flooding in several areas of Chennai, with the city recording an impressive 40 cm of rainfall over a 48-hour span, reminding of the levels observed during the significant 2015 Chennai floods.

Following the severe flooding triggered by Cyclone Michaung, ExNoRa, in collaboration with Equitas Trust and other Stakeholders, undertook relief operations to aid individuals trapped in waterlogged and inaccessible areas. Many parts of city was inundated and all the households who were marooned lost their Groceries and were left unattended and were starving. Electricity was gone and Internet was not accessible to reach out for any help. There were people searching and waiting for some kind of support to help them in this critical time. Our relief team employed boats to rescue these individuals and delivered essential food supplies and other basic requirements to them.

A WhatsApp group comprising community activists and volunteering individuals and Equitas CSR Team from diverse areas was established. Requests for assistance were disseminated through posters, and funds were gathered to aid those in need. The locations and specific support requirements were identified. Subsequently, a rescue team was dispatched and assistance was distributed to those in need.
