Relief to Students in Aligambe

The Rotary Club of Kalmunai (RCK) distributed Exercise books and Biscuits (Contributed by RCCR) to the flood affected students from Aligambe village around 45Km from Kalmunai town.

according to RCK, prior

to 1948 this area was completely under forest cover, and these people lived without clothing/ dresses. Rev. Fr. Kook (an American) entered this area and helped improve this forest into a small village. The villages even to this date use a deferent language/ dialect apart from Tamil.


urrently, a small Church and a School up to grade Eight for around 300 students can be seen.


owever, there is still no electricity since not many people are aware of their plight or for that matter, their existence.

RCCR together with RCK would like to request a willing donor/s to assist us towards providing these villages the basic necessities to help to improve their living standards.
