Kalmunai vagrants get cooked meals and bed sheets
On the initiative of journalists in Kalmunai, vagrants who have been hard-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic are being supplied with cooked meals and bed sheets. These vagrants are presently living in shelters along the roadside shops and other abandoned places without any basic facilities.
A recent survey conducted by the journalists of Kalmunai found they face great hardships not only for their meals, but also when it comes to sleeping. Understanding their predicament and acceding to the requests, Sainthamaruthu Mubarak Textiles came to the rescue and supplied meals and bed sheets to them.
