Sewa International UK South Asia Flood Appeal 2007

The flood situation in India this year has been the worst in the living memory, as stated by the United Nations. The worst affected states being Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Assam followed by many other states like West Bengal, Orissa, and Gujarat. Himachal Pradesh and Arunachal Pradesh have witnessed severe flash floods resulting in loss of life and property, Millions have been affected due to these severe floods and thousands have been rendered homeless.

Sanjay Jagatia of Sewa International UK said “our grass-root volunteers in respective states have been engaged in providing immediate relief with the locally raised available resources and have provided the victims with fresh water, food, emergency medical supplies and basic household items. The most urgent need now is to provide shelter and basic household items and our volunteers have now started medium to long term rehabilitation of the flood victims. Over 75,000 houses have been damaged alone in Bihar, forcing thousands of families to either live under the open sky or on embankments, roads and bridges”.

Sanjay Jagatia continued “Sewa International UK has launched an appeal to help these unfortunate victims. Your support will help reduce the sufferings of these people in the flood affected states, living in the remote areas. Sewa International will help the flood victims with the help of our partner organizations who are working in the disaster areas”.

There is an urgent need to provide relief and rehabilitation to the suffering millions. Whilst the Indian Government is making its own efforts in rescuing people, supplying food, medication, clothing and shelter, the magnitude of the devastation is such that additional aid and resources is needed urgently to help in the relief efforts.
