This image launched tables across India to action ! Leadership was showcased at every area level and table level.
Tr Manish Golyan, AC Area 14 , WhatsApped on the National Groups on the dire situation of flood affected areas; quickly sprung in to action and gave a clearly defined ask in the National groups. The programme was to distribute relief kits at a cost of Rs 1000 / kit. Tables and tablers started pouring in funds and the tablers of Area 14 swung in to action.
National President, Tr Suman Voora sent out an appeal across India stating :
“Tablers of Area 14 are spearheading a direct contact program where the flood relief material will be sourced and distributed to the affected people in Tinsukia, Dibrugarh and Kaziranga regions during this weekend.
Lets all join hands together and help the people in need. I request you to spread the word and contribute towards this cause. Your smallest contribution will make a big difference.”
As I write this blog, the following photos of the relief programme have reached us.
