Flood relief work in India

Kosi river floods in Bihar.

Dear friends,

This monsoon is witnessing 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.

Please help by contributing to AID’s All India Relief fund.

WORK BEING DONE

— 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 thirty deaths and a hundred injured.   People are locally responding by helping out.   AID has sent Rs 200,000  to BSFC for the relief and rehab of these families and others affected by Mumbai rains (the amount is in Rupees).

— Kosi river got flooded impacting villages in Bihar.  AID has sent Rs 395,000 to CACIM to help with mobile health camps on boats, bags and dresses for school children and relief food material.

— In Kerala our support focussed in Nilambur of the Malappuram district.  AID sent Rs 350,000 to PJIC and 700 families in 10 villages were helped via food kits, cleaning of wells and provision of basic utensils.

— Our partners in Assam are responding to recent floods. As the Brahmaputra and Subabsiri swell, water rushes from Arunachal Pradesh’s hilltops through slopes to the valley of Assam, especially Dhemaji District. The most affected are the villages next to the river Brahmaputra, Ladamguri and Laxmisuti Boro in Simenmukh Gram Panchayat.

People are moving to the embankments along with their livestock due to the rise of water. We are helping 35 affected villages.

AID has sent Rs 300,000 to RVC from its All India Relief Fund to help with

– Supplementary nutrition for Children, Pregnant women, lactating mothers.
– Tarpaulin for Temporary Shelter.
– Fodder for cattle.
– Water purification kit
– Country boat for communication.

— The Chars in Murshidabad were flooded by Padma river. AID sent Rs 400,000 to SKMUK to reach out to 2000 families, many of them who are marooned, with tarpaulins and dry food. The tarpaulins can be live saving for the livestock.
