Flood Ravaged Jammu & Kashmir Needs Your Support
A devastating flood that hit Jammu & Kashmir on September 4, has affected more than 5 lakh people. This is the worst flood situation the valley has seen in last 60 years. Roads, homes, hospitals, shops, religious and educational institutions have been submerged in flood waters. More than 150 people have lost their lives so far due to the floods. 20,000 troops have been working day and night for rescuing people and providing relief materials to the affected people. Close to one lakh people have been evacuated so far by the armed forces and National Disaster Relief Force (NDRF), yet close to 4 lakh people are still stranded and waiting for help. Government of India has called this situation a national calamity.
Indian armed forces have set up 19 relief camps across the state, providing shelter to at least 20,000 flood-affected people. Provisions have been made to distribute essential food items and water bottles to them, but there is a lot more support that is required.
