Transitional Shelters for Flood Victims
We thank you for your generous support for our campaign, “Urgent SOS For Flood affected People - Kerala”.
Ever since the devastating deluge occurred in Kerala, life came to stand still. An emergency response team of IGSSS were proactively present in the areas where initially help didn’t reach due to poor connectivity. The tribal communities in Wayanad, Alleppey and Idukki districts are the most affected and yet were secluded from any relief materials and necessary help. With your support, our team identified the most suffered families and helped them with the basic necessary items ( Non food items kit).
We are also working to provide long term rehabilitation and livelihood opportunities to the marginalized families. In our rehabilitation work, we have built transitional shelters, constructed clean wells, and provided community water filters.
Your support is helping us to bring a certain amount of normalcy in the lives of people in Kerala after the deluge.

We thank you for your generous support for our campaign, “Delhi's Homeless need urgent support this winter”.
December signals onset of harsh winters in Delhi and it starts to haunt homeless people living on streets. This year with your support we were able to help the homeless living in and around the shelter homes of Delhi from the beginning of December till the end of January.We conducted night vigil, through the Night vigil, we covered all street of Delhi and reached out to more than 400 people and have supported them for two months. The purpose of the vigil is to create awareness about Govt. run shelter facilities and to guide and facilitate the homeless people to the nearest shelter home. Also, we rescued and help the people who needed medical attention and care. Most importantly, we distributed woollen, blankets and food packets to needy homeless people on streets and distribution of nutritious food in the early morning to the people at the shelters especially in South Delhi for almost 60 days. Your continued support can help us to contribute in improving the situation of shelter homes and homeless.

We thank you for your continued support for supporting our campaign “Gift Life to 1000 water starved families in India”.
Based on the early need assessment done in Karlamunda block, 6 villages of 2 Gram Panchayat (Joradobra and Borpadar) have been identified by the project team to implement the planned activities. These villages do not have canal irrigation facilities and hence have been given priority for the planned activities. Initial grounding meeting took place with the VDC (Village Development Committee) members to make them understood about the project purpose. Several meetings been organized to finalise the possible structures and identified the place to construct the structures in each of the village.
Processes such as discussion with community, getting their consent, identification of sites for construction of water harvesting structures, assessing technical feasibility have been completed.
The work on the construction will be initiated after the paddy harvesting season, by January end, to ensure maximum availability and participation of the community.
