People from all over India have been united in humanitarian works for Chennaiites, who are suffering the consequences of one of the worst floods ever.
Notably, celebrities like Siddharth, Kaniha, Kushboo Sunder and RJ Balaji have become real-life heros for personally helping stranded people in different parts of the South Indian metropolitan city.
Now, a Facebook group named "Anbodu Kochi", in association of various clubs, hospitals and shopping malls in Kochi is on a mission to help the flood-affected in Chennai. They are collecting food, bottled water, medicines, diapers for kids and feminine hygiene products to distribute in various parts of Chennai.
The group has already sent four trucks of supplies to Chennai, and will send more in the coming days.
The Southern Naval Army is also helping the group, and celebrities, including Indrajith Sukumaran, Poornima Indrajith, Aashiq Abu, Rima Kallingal, Munna, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Parvathy and Asif Ali, have been promoting the mission.
