Raindropss Iftar and educational scholarship distribution 2019

Harmony becomes highlight at Raindropss annual Iftar and educational scholarship distribution meet 

Muslims fast from dawn to dusk during Ramzan. The fast is broken at sundown with a meal known as “Iftar”. Members of the community as well as from other faiths break bread together, from which the tradition of Iftar parties emerged. Community iftar in the holy month of Ramadan is one of the most rewarding deeds. The Prophet said: “Whoever gives iftar to a fasting person will have a reward like his, without that detracting from the reward of the person in the slightest,” and in this holy month, communal iftars are abundant in a number of mosques and some public venue’s. Good and affluent people, along with charities and advocacy offices, compete to organize communal iftars where residents of different nationalities come together in a spiritual, brotherly and friendly ambiance even though most of them had never met each other except in communal iftars, and the big mosques are these charitable events’ venues.

This special event witnessed the eclectic crowd including academicians, students, industrialists, social activists from various faiths. VGP Group of Companies Chairman VG Santhosam, Organic Scientist Sultan Ahmed Ismail, Former Chairman of Ethiraj College for Women Mike Muralidharan, Exnora Founder MB Nirmal, Religious Heads and many others participated in the Iftar celebrations along with the less privileged children. After breaking the fast, the educational scholarships contributed by the donors of the organisation were distributed to the academic toppers and less privileged children selected across Tamil Nadu. 

Communal Iftar and Educational Scholarships distribution from Raindropss attempted to strengthen the bond among communities, inter-faith dialogues over food to upload the secular, pluralistic and inclusive spirit of the country alive. We wanted to celebrate Ramzan like all other functions with no religious difference, we are from a secular country we have the right to be free from religious rules and teachings. We take immense pleasure to celebrate Ramzan and distribute the educational scholarships to the less privileged children on this auspicious occasion. Children’s from Seers girls’ home were gifted with new dresses.

Members of Raindropss, ensured that the participants enjoyed the Special Eid Milan feast, comprising fruits, fried savouries, biryani and sherbet followed by haleem sponsored by Dindigul Thalappakkati Restaurant.

Special thanks to all our generous donors for supporting our annual Educate A Child project and thanks to our partners @Dindigul Thalappakkati Restaurant, TStudio, Zodiac Events, Yuva, Saj & Taj and Mega Digital.

On the occasion of World Food Day, @Raindropss in association with Biriyani Brothers organized “Free Food Truck” in Chennai as a part of their “Virunthali – Feed the needy” project, a vision towards hunger free society. Raindropss Free Food Truck was flagged off by Music Director A.R.Raihanah mam, Lyricist Snehan bro and Saran bro, Managing Director of Biriyani, Brothers from Anna Nagar. 

Serving the needy on the roadsides is not something new to Raindropss, we already have a project Virunthali – Feedy the needy, where we serve the needy people almost every week. We started Virunthali – feed the needy project, with a vision of creating a hunger free society. We wanted to name the project as ‘Virunthali’, as we need to treat the needy people starving for food on the roadside as our guests, feed them with a meal and conquer their hunger with love. To do something special and big on World Food Day, we wanted to serve large number of people through our Raindropss Free Food Truck and create awareness on chronic hunger. We received wonderful response and support for this noble initiative through various social media’s. Volunteers of Raindropss, Seers Girls Home, Students from schools and colleges joined to help in serving the food to needy.

Raindropss “REACH THE BEACH” 2018

Going to the beach for the pleasure of enjoying the lap of waves on one’s feet is one of life’s simplest pleasures, and yet it is out of reach for lakhs of differently-abled people. Driven by the need to make it inclusive for all, RAINDROPSS laid a temporary ramp on Elliot’s Beach in the city, for persons with disabilities to reach the shore

Organised by Raindropss, this initiative was to spread awareness on inclusion and making public spaces accessible for people with disabilities. It was a heart-warming sight when the organizers and volunteers of Raindropss gathered to assemble a makeshift, temporary ramp with carpet welcome to enable people on wheelchairs reach the shore. 

We used interconnecting plates on the sand, positioned in such a way as to make movement of the wheelchair easy. Volunteers of Raindropss and support organizations helped keep this make-shift pathway in place, whenever conditions turned windy. 100’s of differently abled persons from Tamilnadu Udhavikaram Differently Abled Welfare Association participated in this initiative.

It is a dream of every differently-abled person: visit the beach to leave a trail on the wet sand and let the frothy waves lap at their legs. But for many, it remains unfulfilled as nothing is more difficult than wading through the sand in a wheelchair or walking on crutches. We wanted to make the dream of every differently-abled person come true, we believe this initiative has made them happy and they will cherish these memories
