7th batch Relief Operations update

NHF Team has visited Kurnool  for the 2nd time in
its 7th Relief batch to Mahboobnagar and Kurnool flood affected areas.

It is 21 days from the disaster that these areas had to meet and the
life in Kurnool Town is far from getting back to normal. Every road is
still filled with a lot of dirt, Kurnool Town still stinks, every
house is still busy cleaning and trying to find what can still be used
and there are already heaps of matress, clothes, food material, furniture etc dumped in the streets. Muncipal tankers are watering the roads
frequently to avoid the dirt  flying in the air on roads and causing
more health problems and driving inconvenience.

 NHF distributed daily usage materials to 375 families of Vaddegeri area in the old town of Kurnool on 22nd Oct, 09. This time to avoid the loot of the locals on the relief vans and to avoid misuse of the material, cupons were distributed by the local members in advnace and all were called at one spot in Kurnool Town.

We distributed 3 KGs rice, 1 oil packet, packets of salt, haldi, chilli poder, 200gms pickle & 200 gms tuar dal, saree, trousers and shirts, one plastic mat, blanket and biscuits. This time it was a little more difficult for us to see the impact of the devastation in the eyes of
especially the educated middle class families. These people might have
never extended their hand for anything like this, but we could see it
very clearly in their eyes the helplessness to take the relief material. It was very difficult for the NHF  volutneers to contain ourselves some were almost in tears. There were hundreds outside the designated area still waiting for the material as there are thousands of more areas within Kurnool town which are still left out by all considering it is a Town there things are alright, but the fact is they are in more misery as most of them are middle class they have always lived on their survival and never extended their arms to take such support. It is very difficult for them to come out and ask or take things that relief teams are giving.

We wish society turn more rational and take measures to avoid such
mishap in the future. NHF extend every possible support what ever from
our end to reach out the maximum even in the coming days.

Kurnool and Mahboobnagar to what ever extent we can.
