Relief operation for Tsunami Victims of Andaman-Nicobar
26th December, 2004 was a black day for this country and the whole world. The Tsunami that hit large parts of the world slammed Nagapattinam in Tamil Nadu and the Andamans with ferocity. Immediately, the volunteers of the Shah Satnam Ji Green S Welfare Force Society were ready to do their bit for the areas most badly hit. The trip to Katchal Islands took several days by Sea- where the scepter of the havoc wrought was simply mind boggling. On the instructions of Guruji, this team was to do its utmost to provide succour.
After a long and arduous journey, when these volunteers arrived on Kachal Islands, they could very well see the aftermath of destruction. These volunteers, with their relentless effort and innovativeness, fitted into every role as per the local needs. From shelter to food, from medical relief to doubling up as teachers in the local school- nothing was left unattended. With the blessing of Guruji, the team of these 29 volunteers successfully solved every type of problem of the local population, that the word spread that these people knew some magic, they had some divine power by which they had the solution to every problem. From teaching school children to distribution of relief items, from organization of medical camps, to anything and everythings !! these volunteers of Dera Sacha Sauda were never found lacking. These volunteers which included Doctors, Engineers, Carpenters, Mechanics, Electrician etc stayed in the difficult terrain of Kamota, Kachal etc for more than 53 days to help the suffering masses and distributed the relief material.They supplied tones of Rice, Wheat Flour, Biscuits, Medicine, Utensils, Torches, Candles, Pulses, Sugar, Edible salt, Soaps and above all the drinking water. A remarkable aspect of selfless and dedicated service was noticed when the youth of Green -S-Welfare Force Society extended full support and co-operation in areas where a meagre strength of Naval personnel could reach. The situation was made very dangerous and damaging due to frequent tremors and high tides, but it could not shake the morale of the volunteers.
