Help prevent disease and starvation in India



CARE plans three phases of response: initial, mid-term, and long-term. We are distributing large volumes of locally procured relief supplies to flood-affected people in hard-hit coastal areas.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

1.2 million along the eastern and southern coasts were affected. CARE has reached roughly 50,000 people with emergency supplies and aim to reach at least 50,000 more people.

How will this project solve this problem?

CARE is distributing water purification materials and oral rehydration salts to stave off water-borne diseases; also clothing, plastic sheeting for temporary shelter, sleeping mats and sheets, hygiene materials, cooking utensils and basic medicines.

Potential Long Term Impact

Prevent water-borne diseases and starvation. Provide temporary shelter. Address psychosocial trauma.
