Mahadev Madhav Nidhi Charitable Trust has over the years gained expertise and experience in post disaster rehabilitation projects.

Immediately after the massive Gujarat earthquake of 2001 the trust had co-ordinated massive relief supplies to the affected regions jointly in association with the German Government.

Subsequently in association with HELP, a German NGO the trust had implemented a European Commission funded project for provision of temporary shelters, maintenance of water storing facilities and temporary school facilities in the earthquake affected areas. Another major project sanctioned by the European Union to the trust under the post disaster Gujarat earthquake rehabilitation programme was the reconstruction of 145 primary school classrooms as well as vocational training to over 2300 earthquake affected youth at Sayla in Surendranagar District.

The trust also co-ordinated and implemented several projects for welfare of the tsunami victims in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh in South India. These included the following:

 
  1. A major project covering selected districts in Tamil Nadu and Andhra for fitting of Jaipur foot prosthetics and distribution of Tricycles and Wheelchairs.
  2. Distribution of sewing machines to the widows of the tsunami victims.
  3. Distribution of bicycles to school children who had to attend schools far away from their villages.
  4. Construction of a vocational training centre for tsunami affected women at Cuddalore in Tamil Nadu.

Immediately after the flash floods in Mumbai on July 26th 2005 the trust in association with the Disaster Management Cell of the city’s Municipal Corporation organized distribution of Food packets, Utensils and garments to the poor left homeless after all their belongings got washed away. In addition to this the trust also helped school going children through provision of school bags and stationery
so that they could continue with their studies.
 
The trust has co-ordinated giving of Educational grants for children of the Mumbai Bomb blast victims with Times of India Foundation and Rajiv Gandhi Foundation. All school going children of the blast victims were screened by a group of social workers at their places of residence and selected ones were
offered scholarships to pursue their studies for a period of five years.
 
BIHAR FLOODS 2008

May 2008 was a black month for over 18 districts of Bihar that were ravaged by floods in the Kosi river. Nearly 3 million men, women & children were rendered homeless and facing starvation due to lack of food and drinking water.

Mahadev Madhav Nidhi Charitable Trust made a valiant effort to outreach thousands of survivors to whom it distributed hygiene kits, protein supplements and survival kits comprising garments, stove, utensils and other articles of daily necessity.

All relief materials were securely packed and labeled to avoid pilferage and misuse.

Special teams from Mumbai took the materials by train as this was the safest and fastest mode of transportation.

Distribution in the worst affected districts was supervised personally to ensure that the materials reached the beneficiaries.

Having completed the immediate post disaster relief the trust is now planning for long term relief efforts including construction of homes for the affected farmers and community based drinking water plants because during the recent floods there was an acute shortage of potable drinking water.
 

PROJECT FOR THE REHABILITATION OF VICTIMS OF NARGIS CYCLONE-MYANMAR 2008


Mahadev Madhav Nidhi Charitable Trust implemented a project for the distribution of over 6000 hygiene and educational kits for children affected by the ravaging cyclone-Nargis in Myanmar.

The project was implemented in spite of severe restrictions and difficult logistical problems in Myanmar.

Contents of each type of kit were selected carefully, packed under close supervision and then shipped in sea worthy packing.

The local Indian populace lent a helping hand in the successful implementation of the project.
