Following the Tsunami attack, many NGOs and Voluntary Agencies have come forward and actively participated in rendering various types of services in the Disaster Zone as well as in the relief camps. They offered help to the district administration by contributing various materials to be distributed among the Tsunami affected families and also lent invaluable services to the Tsunami affected families directly.

The District Collector has taken coordinating meetings of all the NGOs so as to make the best use of the help rendered by the NGOs/VAs. A liaison officer was also appointed to coordinate the efforts of all the NGOs/VAs and a Revenue Subsidiary Office (RSO) has been opened in Alappad Panchayat to render necessary help to the NGOs/VAs.

Many of the NGOs/VAs have supplied various articles that are required for the day-to-day use of Tsunami affected families. They include items like cots, tables, chairs, comprehensive kitchen kits, pedestal fans, comprehensive gas connections with stove, educational and play equipments etc. Government have distributed Solar lanterns, text books, note books, and uniforms to children.

Thus the entire household needs of the affected families have been taken care of. Some generous NGOs/VAs have provided computers, furniture and lab equipments to the local schools and we acknowledge their love and affection for the school children of the affected areas.
