After the flood, tourism fraternity from Thekkady begins massive cleaning

The flood waters have receded from most of the places, and, the Kerala government has taken up the massive task of cleaning houses and public places filled with slush left behind. The hospitality industry in Kerala, which is also hit largely by the floods, is joining hands with the government to help clean the houses.

A team of 66 members from the Thekkady Destination Promotion Council (TDPC) has volunteered in Aranmula (Central Kerala) yesterday. The team, split into teams, cleaned 30 homes all by themselves and helped people clean 20 more houses.

“Tear filled eyes and heartbreaking scenes were only seen at the arrival, but could see hope and courage when the team left. Let us contribute whatever little way we can to our fellow brothers and sisters and get back Kerala strong. Only together we Can!!!!,” said Jiju James of Carmelia Haven.

Thekkady, a part of the Idukki district, is one of the worst hit destinations in the floods.
