THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The volunteers of Kerala State Literacy Mission Authority have completed the cleaning drive at a major part of Kuttanad region, the worst-flood affected area in Alappuzha district. Around 1,000 volunteers, including instructors and students, took part in the drive. Of these, 26 were from the tribal community in Wayanad district.
