India is the world’s largest democracy, with a population of over 1.27 billion. There are over 60% people who are under deep poverty and 45% of people who cannot read.
Our goal is to help poor people both spiritually and physically and also to build schools and hospitals for poor people. Through our ministry we are also making difference by doing social activities such as helping the people who are affected by natural disasters such as flood, earthquake and cyclone and also providing accommodation for the mentally sick people living in the street.
2015 FLOOD RELIEF IN CHENNAI, TAMILNADU
The 2015 South Indian floods resulted from heavy rainfall during the annual northeast monsoon in November–December 2015. They affected the Coromandel Coast region of the South Indian states of Tamil Nadu especially Chennai. More than 500 people have died and over 1.8 million people have been displaced. Damages and losses are estimated to be more than 20000 Crore (US$3 billion). The breaching of ponds, lakes and over flow of rivers has led to severe damage to homes and crops, limiting people’s access to safe drinking water and sanitation. Heavy rains continue to lash Chennai in Tamil Nadu, bringing several parts of the city to a standstill.
