CHENNAI: In an effort to contribute to the flood relief operations at Jammu and Kashmir, the students of IIT-Madras took up a donation drive among their peers on the campus. They have managed to collect close to Rs 1.5 lakh in cash, household items and other relief materials for the victims.

The drive was taken up by the disaster management committee of the institute and the NSS team under the supervision of the student general secretary.

Used posters from across the campus were collected to make posters announcing the donation campaign on the unused sides of the posters.

Collection points for cash were set up at seven locations on the campus for three days, and items like thermal wear, blankets, non-perishable food items, medicines and footwear were collected over five days from the campus residents.

Around 150 used flex banners had been picked up from the dean's office to be donated to the flood victims for putting up tents and water-proofing temporary roofs, the organisers said.

The materials have been donated to GOONJ, a non-profit organization, which would distribute the donated materials to the residents of the flood-hit areas.
