Three places were identified for distribution in Kerala: Alleppey (Kuttanad), Wayanad (Meppadi) and Kannur (Kottiyur); and one in Kodagu in Karnataka. 2500 family packs containing items that could help sustain for a month were sent through the volunteers which should have a social impact on over 10000 people!
