C.S.I. School for the Deaf at San Thome High Road, Mylapore is in need of groceries and snacks for the vocational training students staying at its campus.
Says N. Latha, who is in charge of the Vocational Training unit here, “Following the lockdown, most of the children of our school left to their native places. However, 10 vocational training students could not go as all buses were full. They are staying at the campus along with few teachers now.”
Though the school is managing to cook and provide food to the students, Latha says they are finding it difficult to get groceries and snacks. Says Latha, “Getting groceries is becoming a challenge now. There is a shortage of rice, dhal and even biscuits at the stores in the neighbourhood. The store owners say the stock gets over very quickly these days.”
Latha, who is also a social worker is a resident of Poes Garden in Teynampet. She has been visiting the school campus regularly to provide groceries and other essentials for the people there.
She says it will be helpful if people can donate some snacks and groceries.
The school needs 5 kilos each of rice, dhal, oil, sugar, rava/ semiya and tea/coffee powder, biscuits. Latha says that people who want to donate may give the items to the security guard at the school’s gate.
