Efforts in rebuilding Kerala; SmartCity Kochi calls meeting of IT Companies


Kochi, Sept 5:  SmartCity Kochi organised a meeting attended by close to 30 companies operating in its campus to explore their voluntary support to the massive efforts towards the rehabilitation of those affected and displaced in the wake of the devastating floods that ravaged many parts of the state.

The Ernakulam District Collector Shri K Mohammed Y Safirulla today met the CEOs, Business Heads of operating companies and co-developers, along with SmartCity CEO Manoj Nair, and apprised them on the extent of the economic damage and requested them to join the mission of rebuilding the flood-hit areas and helping the affected people.

Besides contributing to the Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund, the companies can also partner with the District Administration in rehabilitating and helping people to bring their life back to normalcy, Sri Safirulla suggested.

He pointed out that the magnitude of the calamity was so huge that thousands had been rendered homeless and rebuilding their homes and basic infrastructure needed generous support from all quarters. While support by way of contribution to the relief fund is one option, he urged corporates to also identify areas where they intend to support to help rebuild homes and such other measures. To avoid duplication of efforts, he urged that the activities be coordinated with the District Administration.
