CHENNAI: Madras Sterling Round Table 123 and Chennai Mission Trust have come together to help children in Nepal, who are affected by the earthquake, by donating milk powder procured at highly subsidised rates from Arokya (Hatsun).

Hatsun has already donated 10 tonnes of milk powder for the cause and the target in the coming 10 days is 16 tonnes, said Suman Bhura, national president of Round Table.

“Due to scarcity, the price of milk in Nepal is Rs 90 for half a litre. One kilo of milk powder can yield 10 litres of milk and this can help the children a lot,” said Akshay Dugar, chairman, Madras Sterling Round Table 123.

The organisers have invited the public to donate by walking into collection points at partner restaurants like Copper Chimney, Cream Centre, Bombay Brasserie, Marina, Hot Breads, Indiska Magic and French Loaf, in multiples of Rs 500, said M Mahadevan, founder, Chennai Mission Trust.

Donations can also be made through, which has been created especially to reach out to the Nepalese children.

Every Rs 500 donated would sponsor a glass of milk for one child for three months.
