India is home to 1.2 billion people and makes up for a third of the world’s poor.
The people of India need our support. Firstly, in Assam, a state to north-eastern India and home to over 31 million people. Since the day of Eid, Assam has been hit by the destructive floods affecting over 272,000 people. At present, there are 321 villages underwater, all in need of urgent help.
The yearly devastation caused by the monsoon season which occurred early this year and the damage to life and property has been severe. The floods have claimed 3 lives so far and many have been displaced from their homes, losing their land, belongings, and livelihoods.
Our relief teams have begun a two-phase response:
A) Emergency Flood Pack - £25:
- Food Parcel (20kg Rice, 3kg Daal, 1ltr Oil, 1kg Salt, 2 Biscuit Packs and 2 Packs of Soap)
-Tarpaulins (Temporary Shelter)
- Clothing (Sarees and Lungis)
B) Galvanized Iron Sheets (G.I. Sheets) - £110.00
These G.I Sheets will enable those in need to reconstruct and build themselves a permanent shelter. In 2019, our team visited the state of Assam and distributed over 300 bundles of Galvanized Iron Sheets - ensuring 300 families can stay safe for years to come.
