Adani Foundation Gives a Ray of Hope to Train Accident Victim

Business MInutes

It was a fresh beginning for a couple from Sembasipalli Kuppam as they witnessed the opening of their new provisional store. For 30-year-old Prasanth, this is nothing less than a miracle. The newly-constructed shop and the initial investment for goods has been facilitated by the Adani Foundation. Prasanth’s shop was inaugurated by Captain Madhanmohan, COO, Adani Kattupalli and Ennore Port, in the presence of the Adani Foundation team, community leaders, and his well-wishers on May 3, 2024. 

Prasanth lives with his wife Chithra, a 7-year-old son and daughter (aged 5) in Light House Panchayat, Minjur Block in Tiruvallur district. He was working as a train cleaner (on contract) at Basin Bridge Railway Yard. One tragic day in July 2023, he got hit by a train, and lost both legs. The accident broke him from inside, leaving him staring at a dark future ahead. 

The Adani Foundation team (looking after the CSR initiatives of Adani Kattupalli Port) visited him when he was back from hospital. The team assured him of its support in bringing his life back on track, which made him hopeful. His family, which was struggling to make ends meet, also received immediate support from the Foundation. The staff at the Mobile Health Care Unit of the Adani Foundation attended to his injuries and helped him in his recovery. As he was getting better, it was time for him to start looking after his family. Giving him moral support and confidence to rebuild his life, the Foundation team discussed possible livelihood opportunities with Prasanth.
