Bhoomika in Gujarat
Immediately after the Gujarat earthquake of 2001, Bhoomika Trust coordinated relief supplies from Chennai and dispatched ration kits to provide basic sustenance for a month for families in the earthquake affected areas. The Trust also supported a medical team from Chennai, which went to Gujarat to perform corrective orthopedic surgeries.
Members of Bhoomika Trust visited earthquake affected areas of Gujarat. With the help of two local organizations - Anarde Foundation and Kutch Nav Nirman Abhiyan, the Trust identified individuals who had lost their means of livelihood and provided seed capital to help restart their business.
