Flood relief in India

Dear friends,

Last few weeks have witnessed massive flooding in some parts of India leaving people to fend for themselves.  This has been due to incessant rains coupled with poor or faulty infrastructure and erosion of soil and forest cover.

You can help by donating to AID’s All India Relief fund which helps us to respond to such calamities in a timely and effective manner.

— Mumbai has been reeling under the rains.  One of the gravest tragedies is the collapse of a wall in Malad (east) in July 2019 that led water to enter and flood the homes of hard working people in a slum causing over a thirty deaths and a hundred injured.   People are locally responding by helping out.   AID has sent Rs 2 lakhs for the relief and rehab of these families and others affected by Mumbai rains.

— Our partners in Assam are responding to recent floods. The Brahmaputra and Subabsiri are swelling and huge volume of water rushing from Arunachal Pradesh’s hilltops through slopes and plain valley of Assam especially Dhemaji District. The most affected are the villages next to the river Brahmaputra, Ladamguri and Laxmisuti Boro in Simenmukh GP under Sissiborgaon Revenue Circle.

People are moving to the embankments along with their livestocks due to rise of water and erosion. We are committed to help these 35 affected villages.

AID has sent Rs 3 lakhs from its All India Relief Fund to help with

– Supplementary nutrition for Children, Pregnant women, lactating mothers.
– Tarpaulin for Temporary Shelter for human and cattle.
– Fodder for cattle.
– Awareness generation on WASH (Water purification, IEC materials)
– Water purification kit
– Country Boat for communication.

Thank you for your contribution as AID continues to respond to urgent needs in India.
