Challenge

Millions of people displaced and killed in one of the worst floods in many parts of India. With homes, agricultural fields, livelihood and livestock completely devastated life for a vast population has come to a halt. These people need basic relief material right now. Most of the flood hit areas were otherwise also largely neglected areas with little infrastructure and support. Soon it will be winter time in these areas in the absence of basics, winters will be a struggle for survival.

Solution

All contributions will go towards relief and rehabilitation in flood hit parts. Goonj will reach remote with immediate relief kits with essentials for families (tarpaulins, blankets, utensils, sanitary pads, toiletries, groceries, mosquito nets, torches, clothing etc). Relief phase will be followed rehabilitation program around infrastructure repair and basic aspects like water, sanitation, education, women's health while continuing with basic material inputs in winters and long term.

Long-Term Impact

Through years of experience in disasters; Goonj has now build a pipeline network for response. For cost effective operations resources will be moved to nearest cities from the affected areas with a long term view. Our focus for long term will be on cleanliness drives, education, women's health & improving infrastructure like roads, public place, making bamboo bridges, cleaning ponds etc. as per local needs. People who will participate will be rewarded with family packs for their basic needs.
