Suhas IAS, District Collector, Alappuzha inaugurated the distribution of the kits to Kudumbashree members and head loading workers. He also appreciated the Kudumbashree women for their efforts. It was as per the request of Shri. Krishna Teja IAS, Sub Collector, Alappuzha who wished to conduct a farewell function marking the end of the collection camp of the Kudumbashree women that the District Collector addressed the Kudumbashree women. Kudumbashree Mission was entrusted with the packing of the relief kits for the flood survivors by the Alappuzha District Administration. The packing camp was set up at SD College, Alappuzha.
More than 500 women had actively participated in the packing camp on daily basis. The Kudumbashree members from Alappuzha Municipality North, South CDS, Punnapra South CDS, Purakkad CDS and Kudumbashree women from relief camps were the active participants of the packing camp.
In between, Kudumbashree Alappuzha District Mission was challenged by Shri. Krisha Teja IAS and Shri Balakiran IAS to pack 15,000 relief kits a day. The confident yet united team of Kudumbashree women under the leadership of Kudumbashree block coordinators set the record by packing 20,500 kits a day and had succeeded in the challenge of the IAS officers. It was on the Thiruvonam day that the packing was started. More than Kudumbashree members were present then. When the IAS officers asked to pack 15,000 kits a day, there were only 2 temporarily set up sheds. District Mission replied that they would do the same if there are more sheds. The District Administration set up 6 sheds for Kudumbashree women. The Kudumbashree District Mission of Alappuzha acted systematically by entrusting Kudumbashree block coordinators at each counters. With dedication and hard work they were able to pack 20500 kits a day and succeeded in the challenge then. It was also planned to give a remuneration for their efforts. The District Collector said that the District Administration would call for a meeting to felicitate the Kudumbashree women very soon.
