As part of the flood relief and rehabilitation, the NSS unit, Youth Red Cross unit and Rovers & Rangers, Staff Welfare Association of Canara College, Mangaluru organized a Flood Relief fund collection campaign at the college premises. The student volunteers gave complete support and worked very hard so as to ensure maximum collection for the affected areas. They collected a sum of Rs. 42,206. Then the essential utensils were bought and packed for 40 families. On August 30, 2019 the commodities were taken off to Kukkavu Village of Belthangady taluk and handed over to 40 families who were affected by flood in the presence of the Panchayat members of Kukkavu Village. The day was really unforgettable and such an effort indeed made us truly happy.
The NSS Programme officers, Youth Red Cross Conveners and volunteers got an opportunity to meet and discuss with the former minister Dr. M. VeerappaMoily on the spot. The honourable minister appreciated the initiative and efforts of Canara family members and congratulated the team for the support given to the flood victims.
Students learnt the importance of helping the less fortunate people and empathy towards the needy.
