Help the Bihar Flood Victims
Floods are one of the most extensive and severe natural disasters. Imagine having to live on the streets as the surging flood water devours your home. You helplessly witness your village sinking several feet into the muddy pool. The crops that you had sown with spine-breaking labour, drowned alongside. Waves of repercussions, from no access to clean drinking water and broken toilets to starving stomachs and deteriorated finances, smear salt on your bleeding wounds over and over again. Crammed with a mass of your fellow villagers inside a tiny shelter house, one thought constantly haunts you- what if your family contracts the deadly coronavirus?
Such is the story of thousands of rural lives in Bihar, whose villages have been severely hit by the ceaseless downpour and flash flood from the rivers of Bagmati, Gehumi, and Kamla.
Official data reveals a minimum of 8,00,000 people to have been affected by the floods. Most of the victims are reversed migrants, already suffering a financial crisis. Women and children are at the heart of the damage caused. Unhygienic conditions and starvation, causing vulnerability to water-borne diseases, as well as the coronavirus, increasingly threaten their health every passing second. In such dire straits, they have no one to turn to, no stored grains to mitigate hunger and no gear to defend themselves from diseases.

Dry ration: Rice, Pulses, Soyabean, Edible Oil, Turmeric Powder, Sugar and Salt
Cooked meals: One-time meal - Our cooked meal initiative, we aim to mitigate hunger and keep the victims away from starvation in such trying times.
