Cheltenham council succour for tsunami-hit

Staff Reporter

GUNTUR: The Cheltenham Borough Council in the United Kingdom in association with 22 Rotary International district clubs all over the world will help construct 200 houses for tsunami-affected at Nizampatnam in Guntur district.

The Rotary International District Governor (1100), Paul R. Charter, came down to Nizampatnam to donate 130 wooden boats, and six fibre boats to tsunami victims last week.

The Minister for Cooperation, Kanna Lakhsmi Narayana, donated boats, nets and clothes on behalf of the club.

He also promised help for 10 drinking water schemes in villages around Kothapalem and Nizampatnam. "People of Cheltenham have donated to the Cheltenham tsunami villages' fund," the Mayor of Cheltenham, Rob Garnham, said in a letter.

The Hardy Oils and Gas Limited of Chennai represented by its CEO, Sastry Karra, donated two fibre boats at a cost of Rs.2.75 lakhs, and sanctioned another Rs.14 lakhs for sinking borewells in the coastal fishermen colonies identified by the Rotary International Tsunami Relief and Rehabilitation Committee.

The committee coordinator, Ravi Vadlamani, said that philanthropists from 23 countries had come forward to dig 100 open wells in villages around Nizampatnam. The aid from the UK would be utilised to construct 200 houses on which work would begin soon with help of the district administration, Mr. Ravi said.
