“Helping hand is better than praying lips” – Mother Theresa. On 1st September 2011, Thursday a fire accident occurred at a hamlet called Kuranganthattu, which falls under AMPL’s Arumuganeri branch of Tiruchendhur Taluk, Tuticorin District. The fire broke out when Mr.Periyasamy while asleep in his hut kicked the burning oil lamp and as the hut was made of dry Palmyra leaves was lit by fire instantaneously before Mr.Periyasamy and his wife Mrs.Muniammal could respond and douse the fire.
The fire spread swiftly to near by huts engulfing 46 huts of which 12 huts were that of AMPL members. The people were stunned, because in a fraction of time their lives come on to the road. The situation was worse and people could not realise what is happening but well timed all the people’s lives was saved. A necessary rehabilitation measure taken by ADF was fast and apt, and gave away 25kgs of rice and cash of Rs 500 to all affected members of AMPL. 12 members of Asirvad Microfinance Pvt Ltd were received these rehabilitation materials from ADF. Mr.Samudram, Coordinator-ADF along with Mr.Chinnadurai, Branch Manager and Mr.Rajendran, Area Manager gave away rice and cash to following AMPL members.
The members of AMPL were surprised by the timely of Asirvad Development Foundation. Really, they do not have words to convey their thanks to our Foundation and Chairman, ADF for its care and concern of their members. Now they are coming back to the normal life slowly, within one or two months of period, they will restore their activities.
