Devastating floods in Kerala is drawing attention of the people round the world.  There have been heavy losses to lives of people and animals as well as to crops. Many organizations are running campaigns to provide food, medicines, blankets and other accessories to be distributed in affected areas. Plightful condition of animals in such situations is un-imaginable. Belagu foundation, as is run & managed by Vets, is in contact with Vets in Kerala state. We learnt from Vets from Brahmagiri development society, Wayanad, that they have sufficient quantity of concentrate feed, supplements and medicines, but real problem is to arrange fodder for about 40,000 cattle, as all sources of fodder are water logged.

To address the challenge, Team Belagu has planned to provide about fodder procured from private supplier and send it immediately to Wayanad and Kottayam districts in co-ordination with Veterinary Associations in those districts under our ‘Punyakoti fund’ for animal husbandry activities.  Arranging transportation was a big challenge, but the Brahmagiri development society, Wayanad took the responsibility in that district, while in Kottayam, it was from our foundation itself. However responsibility to assure transfer of matirials to genuine beneficiaries was taken by both Brahmagiri development society, Wayanad and IVA, Kottayam chapter. In Kodagu, feed supplements were arranged for the rescued animals with the help of Siddon Biotech Ltd and distributed with the help of local Vets.

Project details:

  • Ten tons of silage was provided to Waynad district of Kerala through ‘Brahmagiri Development association’, at a cost of Rs 42,500.
  • Eight tons of green fodder was provided to flood affected Kottayam district of Kerala at cost of Rs 60,000 (including transportation charges)
  • Feed supplements and mineral mixtures to the extent of Rs 1.2 lakhs was provided to affected parts of Kodagu through local Veterinarians.
