A truck full of educational materials collected by students from over 200 schools and colleges of Delhi-NCR was flagged off from Delhi today to be distributed in the flood affected schools in Kerala’s Kuttanad.

Collected under a campaign conducted during September-October by the Leaders For Tomorrow Foundation, the education kits comprised of notebooks, pens, pencils and other stationery.

“Our volunteers were touched by the plight of those affected by the floods in Kerala and wanted to help in rebuilding their lives. So we got together to help students like us who have had to suffer huge losses as a result of this disaster,” said Kayenaat Gill, North Zone President, Leaders For Tomorrow Foundation.

The volunteers of the foundation reached out to people across the capital through collection drives in schools, colleges and residential areas. LFT had also partnered with the Delhi Metro to conduct the campaign at two metro stations.

Flagging off the truck carrying the educational materials, the founder of Leaders For Tomorrow Foundation Binoy Job said, “Being a youth movement with an emphasis on students, it is natural for us to feel the pain of the students affected by floods. ‘To Kuttanad with Love’ is our way to express our solidarity with them.”

About 25,000 students study across over 100 schools in the region. 

In August, Kerala witnessed the worst flood of a century, which killed hundreds and displaced a million. Kuttanad, the lowest lying area in India that falls over 10 ft below sea level, was completely submerged underwater during this disaster.
