SUPPORT REHABILITATION FOR FLOOD VICTIMS

Floods wreak havoc in Assam every year, and this year has been no different. Over the years, AJMAL FOUNDATION has been identified as the most trusted and sincere friend of those battered by the onslaught of natural furies like devastating flood, cyclone and manmade disasters. Already some millions of people have been assisted so far at the time of various catastrophes including earthquake in Nepal and Gujarat, tsunami in South India, flood in Bihar, Assam and West Bengal, cyclone in Odisha and the ethnic riots in Muzaffargarh (UP) and Assam.

This year, floods caused by heavy spells of rain since the beginning of June have claimed 23 lives so far (courtesy: The First Post, dated- 21st June, 2018) . The situation in the State is far from improved and the damage to life and property has been enormous. There are thousands of people who, having lost their homes, are still living in relief camps.

In Assam, over 5.48 lakh people have been affected in the deluge across six districts. A total number of 719 villages under 20 revenue circles have been affected According to the Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA), the places that have been most affected are in the places of Nagaon, Hojai, Karbi Anglong West, Golaghat, Karimganj, Hailakandi, and Cachar districts.
