THE TITANIC EXPERIENCE …………..
SAVE THE DISTRESSED AT UDAVUM KARANGAL
I am sure you are all aware that one of our Units – Karunai Illam at Maduravoyal was totally sunk last week and all the 150 women patients were evacuated over night and relocated at our Unit – SHANTHIVANAM at Thiruverkadu. Since then, all the 400 male & female psychiatric patients and old aged are housed at this place as the water at Karunai Illam is still on the rise.
Now again, the incessant rains on 1st Dec. have doubled the havoc by getting even the SHANTHIVANAM Unit submerged under waters.
Another Unit – Malarvanam at Thiruverkadu, where the male psychiatric patients, spastic and the old aged are housed is also flooded with 5 ft water inside the Home.
All their belongings at both these places have been washed away. The food provisions, beds, blankets, clothes have all been soiled all of a sudden. The floods are up to the hip and we pray they don’t grow neck deep. One peculiar thing about our residents who are patients and old aged is that they are still unaware of the grave situation they are into. All the residents and children have been brought to a safe place on the 1st and 2nd floor of our Home.
It is a tearful experience to see the neighborhood population homeless and stranded on the streets. We have extended all help by giving to these people food, blankets, dresses, etc. You too can make a difference through Udavum Karangal and care for those suffering neighbours.
