Formation of Anavi - Chennai chapter was in the pipeline for sometimes and it got materialised on 11th Dec 2015 when people in Chennai needed a helping hand due badly affected by heavy rains and consequent floods. Activities of Anavi in Kolkata and Mumbai was explained to few seafarers in Chennai and they have voluntarily shown interest to form chennai Chapter within a short notice of 2 days.
Anavi team along with Anglo Eastern Chennai office staff visited flood affected areas in Ramapuram on 19th December and distributed provision/grocery kits to 100 families in and around Sathyanagar. This colony is just behind Miot hospital where about 30 patients died on 3rd December due shortage of oxygen as power back-up generator gone under water and subsequently the hospital was sealed. During flood days water logging was upto 20 feet touching the ceiling of their first floor. All of them were shifted to other areas during flood and left with nothing once it got drained out and even now without power supply. We have provided them 2 weeks provision for a family in each kit and they were surprised to see the quality of the provision as we have bought it from a standard departmental store.
