Lions Club Thodupuzha members in partnership with Kerala Club of Detroit along with the National Service Society unit volunteers of 93 students and 7 staff member from Santhigiri College Vazhithala were mobilized to perform the cleanup activities of the remote tribal village homes. Kerala Club sponsored the food, rent for all materials used for cleaning and transportation of the volunteers.
As you can see from the images, transporting such a large number of volunteers through unpaved and treacherous flood damaged roads of Poomala to Padinjaremethotti was a challenging undertaking. The volunteers had to go on foot to reach the actual locations in the end. This project not only provides the satisfaction of helping the flood affected tribal villages but also the happiness of being able to get the younger generation students involved in the community responsibility and volunteering.
