Gujarat – Western State of India is hit by very Powerful devastating Earthquake on 26th January 2001. Peoples there are in need for the immediate help of any kind such as tents, blankets, potable water & food and so on. As a responsible Person located so far from motherland, in Singapore, we have decided to send some relief aid, whatever we could, to Gujarat.
We will be collecting relief fund in Singapore and then we will immediately transferring it to Patan (Near Rapar – North Gujarat) in near real time. My parents and locals there have volunteered to purchase the items in lieu of the aid and they have even volunteered to deliver it personally to remote areas of Kutch, bypassing the government machinery & channel, which are still not covered by media and aid agencies. The local volunteers assured us that every single penny would be used for relief items.
