Since late March, Appu along with 50 other volunteers from, actor-politician Kamal Haasan’s political party Makkal Needhi Maiam have been distributing masks, sanitizers and groceries at the neighbourhood kuppams.
Three months hence, Appu says they continue to carry out this service without any break.
Says Appu, a resident of Mundagakanni Amman Koil Street, “Through the lockdown, we have been helping the needy. Though we slowed down post intense lockdown, we began distributing essentials soon after it was relaxed. So far we have reached out to slum dwellers at Visalakshi Thotam, Srinivasapuram and Dooming Kuppam.”
