Challenge

Over 14,000 pilgrims are still missing, 60,000 stranded and over 150 people are reported to be dead from the unprecedented rains followed by floods and landslides in Uttarakhand. Chief Minister, Vijay Bahuguna has called it as a "Himalayan tsunami". More than 160 villages have been completely devastated, while road links and communication systems have been completely washed away. Hundreds of villages are affected and villagers are left homeless - surviving without food and shelter.

Solution

We aim at providing immediate relief to the stranded pilgrims and the displaced local residents.

Long-Term Impact

Once the Pilgrims have been rescued, we will do an on ground assessment of the situation and will then launch a rehabilitation drive to help the local communities recover and get back to normal life.
