Tiruvallur district is one of the flood/cyclone-prone Districts in the State. Heavy and continuous rainfall affected our program communities in Poondi Block as most of the families are living in and around Poondi lake and river bed of Kosasthalai and Arani rivers. Heavy and continuous rainfall in the month of November 2021 caused severe damage to the Dalits and Tribal's houses and left them stranded, challenging their livelihood for a few days.

IRCDS during this time, gave them cooked food, snack, rice along with a financial aid of Rs 192000 (@ Rs 4000 each) to 48 affected families (ST – 25 and SC-23) to fix the damages caused to their roofs and mud walls through the Tashildars and Panchayat Presidents.
