Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) India Appeals for Urgent Support for Flood-affected States


New Delhi, August 14, 2019: Severe floods in the Indian States of Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Assam, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh have left communities, settlements, livestock and wildlife in an utter state of despair. While, efforts to provide relief and rehabilitation to the victims are in full swing, the floods have so far claimed several lives. Government agencies are deployed in flood-hit areas of the country to carry out the relief and rehabilitation activities and a 24X7 control room has been set-up in Delhi to closely monitor the regions.

The monsoon rains, so far has claimed more than 450 lives, and the death toll continues to rise. More than 75 Lakh people are severely affected and have taken shelter in relief camps. Further, healthcare facilities remain non-functional making the ailing and elderly vulnerable. Health support for women and adolescent girls is inadequate.
