The association has organised the pick-up of relief materials including blankets, toiletries, sanitary napkins, clothes, hand towels and non-perishable grocery items.
“We already had 100 T-shirts, sarees and biscuits in stock, which we will personally carry to the flooded areas,” said Kumar, who has contributed over `1 lakh.
A team of six will start from the city on August 15 and take the materials to Shivamogga.
Dr Sribhavani Rakhesh, the organising secretary who lives in the UK, said, “When I first advertised this event, the response was overwhelming.
“I felt it was my duty to go to Nepal in 2015 and Kerala last year with materials,” said Kumar.
