Disaster Relief

Northeast India continues to battle flood fury due to the incessant rains over the last few weeks. The death toll in Assam and Bihar floods has mounted to 174 and a total of 12.6 million people have been affected by the calamity in the two states.

Inundation due to continuous heavy rain has caused structural damages of houses and schools, rendering them inhabitable. Contamination of drinking water sources and lack of useable toilets across the two states has further hampered the lives of the communities.

United Way India stands in solidarity with the victims of this unprecedented tragedy and is making coordinated efforts to rush relief to the affected areas. Our aim is to provide immediate relief assistance to the affected families and to ensure the survival of the most vulnerable amongst the survivors.
