New Delhi: Following the severe rainfall that flooded Chennai recently, UrbanClap has come up with an initiative to organize a pest control camp at three locations within the city.

The activity is scheduled to start at Thiruvanmiyur Kuppam, and will be led by fifteen volunteers from the organization, and its partners.

Abhiraj Bahl, Co-founder, UrbanClap said, “Over the last few days, the residents of Chennai have come together against this crisis. As an organization that’s committed to serving the city of Chennai, we thought we should do our bit by tying up with our partners to offer free pest control services in areas worst affected by the floods.”

While the rains have ceased, several areas continue to face the problem of water logging. Several eminent public health experts have even raised concerns that this situation will lead to a rise in cases of dengue, malaria, chikungunya and other associated diseases.

This initiative aims to eliminate the increasing population of mosquitoes and other insects, in households across the city.

Other areas in the city, which will also receive these services includes Kuilkuppam (Velachery) and Kanagam (Taramani). (ANI)
