Sheela Nagar food point acted as a second stop for migrants who came via Gajuwaka. This food point provided all the necessary care and as well as shelter. An under-construction building nearby was used to provide shelter to the tired migrants, and transportation was arranged for them from this food point via Auto or Truck.
Sheela Nagar food point was located near the entry point of the central city of Visakhapatnam, very close to the NAD junction; it provided food, water, rehydration fluids and shelter to the migrants. A nearby under-construction building was identified and used to give shelter to the migrants. We provided transportation of the migrants to their hometown with the help of the Andhra Pradesh Traffic Police. Trucks and buses which used to head towards cities of Odisha, West Bengal and other northern states of India were halted and asked to carry the migrants as passengers. Some truck drivers did it out of goodwill, and Vizag Volunteers paid some.
The food point provided food, water, shelter and transport to the migrants. On average, 700-1000 food packets were distributed daily.
