Thanks for fulfilling the dream

19 December 2006, Amritapuri

“Nowhere in the world, has another NGO built such a bridge like Amrita Setu. On behalf of the people and the Panchyat Committee of Alappad, we thank the Mata Amritanandamayi Math for this noble gift. When the Tsunami occurred in 2004 there was only a bridge to the south in Panikkarukadavu which connected us to the mainland, but the Tsunami hit worst in the northern area of Alappad Panchyat at Srayikkad, Azheekal, and Parayakadavu. There, the only way to escape to the mainland was via water. Amrita Setu provides a new evacuation route that will help to allay the fears of the people in this area. Amrita Setu is a blessing from Amma to the Alappad region.”
– Mr. Rajadas, President Alappad Grama Panchyat

“The Amrita Setu bridge, which will be inaugurated by His Excellency, Indian President APJ Abdul Kalam, is very useful for the people. The concept of a bridge has long been a dream of this area. The Kulasekharapuram Grama Panchyat Committee Members thank Mata Amritanandamayi and the officials of the Math for fulfilling this dream.”
– Srimati Jagadamma, President Kulasekharapuram Grama Panchyat
