23 lakh of our countrymen suffer day and night in flood hit Assam. It is called the worst flood in last century. Sankalp has decided to act and provide as much relief as can be organized. The Field Volunteer team has already left for Assam. Today they’ll reach the affected area to estimate the actual needs, identify the best procurement points and transport lines and build strategy for systematic distribution. Sankalp will soon reach out to the needy and ensure delivery of the goods. Please support and participate in this relief operation.
Here is some data from the State Disaster Management Authority:
- 27 districts are affected by the floods
- 125 people have lost their lives and 17 are missing.
- 4540 villages are affected
- 23,91,369 people have been displaced
- 622 relief camps are running housing 4,84,555 people
The team from Sankalp has zeroed upon Jorhat in lower Assam as the target location. Currently the 100km stretch along the Brahmaputra in this area is worst affected. People who were involved in relief operations so far tell us that food and medicine are the primary requirements. The current plan is to make purchases at Jorhat and distribute goods in the affected area.
Please come forward and join the Project Prayas. It must be mentioned here once again that every single rupee that you contribute will be used to purchase goods exclusively. The contribution of the volunteers of the organisation will be used to cover the cost of travel, stay, logistics, transport etc. Let us stand by our people when they need us the most.
