The Mukul Madhav Foundation (MMF) has extended its support towards flood-affected areas of Konkan & Western Maharashtra under CSR activity thus providing relief to over 35 villages and close to 11,600 families. The state has been badly affected by floods since July 20th. The MMF with the support of Finolex Industries’ teams has extended support to damaged areas of Mahad, Mandangad, Poladpur, Dist. Raigad, Chiplun in Ratnagiri, Palus In Sangali, Shirol Dist. Kolhapur, Wai & Patan in Dist. Satara, Bhambarde & Vegere in Mulashi in Pune district.
In the wake of the raging floods, more than 3 lakh people across 1000 villages were displaced from their homes, most recently in low-lying areas of Kolhapur district along the Panchganga River which overflowed after heavy rain and water released from the Koyna dam. On the successful survey, the local on-ground teams of Foundation began to support the flood afflicted victims with ration and essential kits along with tarpaulin to rebuild and revive their homes. The items of support included dry ration, blankets, raincoats, water bottles, phenyl, towels, clothes, bedsheets, educational kits for students, and skin ointments. These materials were directly transported to the affected areas by the ground volunteers.
