How CAF India supports the flood victims?

Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) India is working to provide immediate resources for relief and rehabilitation to the worst affected communities in these states which are in urgent need of temporary shelter support, sanitation and hygiene (especially women and children). Emergency health support services, fodder and shelter support for livestock, access to safe drinking water, and food and nutrition security are also being provided. In addition, long-term rehabilitation to livelihoods and infrastructure as well as disaster risk reduction activities are also a key focus area.

CAF India is reaching out to the affected people with the following support:

Resilience

Our disaster risk reduction and preparedness program would be based on developing strong community-based institutions. The victims would be provided with necessary trainings, tool kits and country boats, as well as will be linked to relevant government departments. These initiatives will ensure that community volunteers are ready and responsible to deal with disaster when it strikes.
