Over 600 people have died and several hundred thousand have been left struggling by the floods unleashed by the monsoon rains, and we are just in the middle of the season.
The last spell of flooding between 22nd to 27th July has left 300,000 people in relief camps, washing away their homes, assets, and livelihoods.
The Indian Red Cross Society (IRCS) National Headquarters and its branches in the affected states have been responding through its hundreds of trained volunteers from the very first hours of the floods.
IRCS has been extending rescue and first aid services as well as clean water, shelter and hygiene material. Indian Red Cross volunteers are working tirelessly and extending support from reserves especially built for such emergencies.
We are appealing for support to reach 25,000 affected families across India.
Your contribution will provide the affected families, first aid support, water and sanitation services, tarpaulin sheets for shelter, mosquito nets, kitchen utensils, solar lanterns, bed sheets and clothes.
