More than 10,000 affected villagers and slum dwellers in Puri District were served cooked food, wherever cooking fadlities were not available. The food was prepared and served at their shelters by the Seva Dais with utmost love and care. Further, 10,000 more were served by supplying them with adequate rations. Around 2,600 safe drinking water jars were provided to the households.
The calamity had also left the villages and their surrounding water sources polluted and unhealthy. The Seva Dal volunteers went in batches taking with them adequate quantity of bleaching powder, other sanitary items, and cleaning equipment including automated wood cutters to clear the logs from the blocked roads.
