Kalyan school aid for Chennai
KALYAN: Kalyan’s Sacred Heart School, which is well-known for providing aid to victims of natural calamities across the country, is helping those hit by the recent Chennai floods.
The school collected 15 tonnes of materials. Around 2,600 students along with their parents and 300 school staff, collected cereals and sanitary items, which they sent to the National Social Service wing of IIT Madras on Wednesday.
“When we read about the floods in the papers, we decided to help the victims. On Sunday we had a meeting and decided to inform our students to bring as much groceries from their homes as they could,” said Albin Anthony, Administrator, Sacred heart School.
“We collected the items and they reached Chennai in 96 hours. I am sure it must have helped the victims. The parents and students were very supportive,” added Anthony.
Earlier, the school had helped the victims of the 2005 Mumbai floods by providing a shelter for 4,000 people in the school premises.
