Round Table India has proved that they practice what they preach and extend their philanthropic work from construction of school buildings for poor and needy to actually helping flood affected people of Chennai.

One can be prepared for man-made calamities. However, when natural disasters or calamities strike no one can do anything. Natural calamities does not differentiate between rich or poor, high caste or low caste, between religions. Everyone gets affected adversely.

Flood is one of the worst calamities. It simply washes away everything including food, money, wealth, clothes etc. People have to practically starve, remain wet and shivering in the cold water till they are rescued and moved to safer and drier places.


Round Tablers from all over the country joined hands and decided to help these flood affected people in Chennai. Not only did they procure blankets, clothes, food and all such things necessary for the sustenance of the people, they practically delivered the goods to them.


The Tablers from Bengaluru, Chennai, Nagpur, Mumbai and other places visited Chennai and reached the essential goods to people wading in hip-deep waters. While many NGOs and social organizations did their part in reaching out to the flood victims, many did for ulterior motives and publicity.

Round Tablers performed this noble deed without any ulterior motive of public recognition. Their deeds at Chennai are really worth appreciating.
