Wipro's Chennai Marathon 2015-16

Wipro

A great honor for us to serve the public and collaborate with the Wipro's Chennai Marathon 2015-16 yesterday. The Agni Foundation served as Logistics and Transportation partner, providing free shuttle service for the amazing runners from the finish line to the start line. Over 5000 runners who needed a lift were served by the 15 ACT college buses.

 Great job by the organzisers especially Prasanna Venkatesh for conducting such an mammoth event!! United Way of Chennai has continued to showcase professionalism and servitude towards the Underprivileged. Wonderful response from the City of Chennai. So proud to be part of this wonderful initiative which brought 16000 runners together for a noble cause!

Very grateful to my dedicated team for staying awake an entire night to ensure the transportation process went on smoothly.

The motivational video details my personal journey of documenting the impact of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam's influence in the hearts and minds of the youth, his unfortunate death which was mourned by over 2 billion people and his final wish to see each Indian fulfilling his/her Unique potential. 

The Immortal Legend of our generation had inspired and motivated millions of youth across India to work with him in the pursuit of his noble vision:

He may have left us, but his vision still runs through our veins. This inspirational video is to keep the fire burning in the hearts and minds of the Indian Youth.

Agni Foundation - Chennai Floods Rescue &Relief update 7/12/2015 – Part II

Agni Foundation - Chennai Floods Rescue &Relief update 7/12/2015 – Part II

Another satisfying day comes to a close with over a lakh people served food, water, emergency items, blankets, clothes and other materials.

We were blessed with the support of nammachennai Police force who escorted all our 350 field volunteers during the relief distribution. Apart from the amazing fact that we distributed INR 61,00,000 worth supplies that were donated entirely by the generous and kind hearted samatarians from all over the country, the best part of the day was how warmly our volunteers were recieved in the adversely affected areas in Porur, Pallikarnai, Selayur and outskirts of Gummidipoondi.

Special thanks to the increased force of dedicated and socially responsible volunteers who helped load,unload and distribute these materials to the victims.

A big hug to my new found family members of the BLINK foundation:

Sagar, Fazilla, Solomon, Ajmal, Nabil, Aiswarya and others of that young army. The synergy of both BLINK and AGNI has enabled us to achieve and surpass our noble expectations to serve the society.

 

 

Finally, my baby brother who decided to stay back in India and serve the hapless victims of the Floods alongside all of us was the icing on the cake. He loaded/unloaded 5 buses worth of materials and coordinated all the pickups and drop off points with all the volunteers. It would have been a tall ask for Agni Foundation to serve the way we have been doing for the past 2 weeks if it wasn't for Vishnu Jayaprakash. You’re the best.

SURYAN FM 93.5 is officially partnering with us to spread the awareness. So far we have registered more than 500 volunteers. Kudos!

North Madras is in ruins and is critical!! More than 2 lakh People are starving and DOZENS HAVE DIED OF HUNGER.

Our teams went into these areas on boats today where the authorities and the NRDF forces haven't visited yet. The damage to life and property is catastrophic and unimaginable.

    Agni Foundations needs at least 10000 food packets for tomorrow's relief efforts at North Madras. We have already organized 2500 eggs and 8400 liters of bottled water for these areas. People there have been stranded for 3 days without food or water. Anything at this point will be useful. Stand together with Chennai.

Agni Foundation - Chennai Floods Rescue & Relief update

Agni Foundation - Chennai Floods Rescue & Relief update

Agni Foundation - Chennai Floods Rescue & Relief update

Firstly, please forgive me if my team of volunteers or myself haven't been able to rescue or reach relief supplies to you or the ones who you had personally requested. It was a very hectic day of service with very poor network facilities.

13220 food packets were distributed today by the service minded and passionate youth volunteers at the Agni Foundations. 184 families have been evacuated across 40 different locations. Credits to several donors who provided the meals.

 

The rains have subsided for now, but the situation is very criticial in Kotturpuram, alwarpet, thambaram, nandhanam, velachery, saidapet, Anna Nagar.Many areas are bad but improving. Several lakes and rivers are overflowing. The water is flowing back into the streets as the the drain system are clogged.

250 Foundations volunteers and myself have been working tirelessly day and night to help those who are severly affected. We are not only providing food but also places to stay across chennai. Many of the places are inaccessible and dangerous. We haven't been able to rescue all those who requested but we are still trying our best. Tommorow we will be renting a couple of boats to reach relief supplies to the affected. Hopefully, that will enable us to optimise our operations.

Network has been down and internet is very hard to access. Many roads are inaccessible and dangerous. We haven't been able to rescue all those who requested but we are still trying our best. Right now I would sincerely request all of you to stay indoors. Please stock rations and use water very conservatively.

   

Please help us connect with the national news agencies such as Times Now, NDTV and CNN-IBN to help streamline our rescue and relief operations in the coming days. We have volunteers across the city who can not only offer food but also a place to stay.

Please continue to support the Agni Foundation - Chennai Needs you! In any way you can.
