NIT-T students knock on doors

Students and faculty of NIT-T offering assistance

Students of National Institute of Technology - Tiruchi (NIT-T), accompanied by faculty and staff members, reached out to the doorsteps of the cyclone-affected people in Pudukottai district.

The students covered two villages Vettanviduthi and Surakkadu located near Alangudi in the district, and supplied materials to 400 families. The students had been told by the local media that the two affected villages had not been visited by the government officials since there was no bus connectivity.

The students distributed 400 packets, each containing candle, match box, biscuit, rusk, mosquito coil, brush, toothpaste, atta flour and water bottles. The idea of delivering the materials at door steps was thought of to ensure that the old people who will not be able to come to the common distribution point are not left out, a student volunteer said.

To make sure that they could reach out to all the houses, the students also took along a few motorcycles along with the truck laden with relief materials.

They received assistance from some youths of the area and a couple of police personnel.

The students who had split out in groups were received warmly by every family.

With a sense of fulfilment, the students are also planning to distribute 200 torch lights in a village in Pattukottai, and another consignment of relief materials to 500 families in Thiruthuraipoondi block in Tiruvarur district.
