Shri Surinder Singh Negi, Honorable Minister of Medical & Health, honored AmeriCares for its response to the catastrophic flooding in Uttarakhand during a ceremony in Rudraprayag on Nov. 30, 2013. Mr. Negi handed over relief supplies donated by AmeriCares to the Chief Medical Officers (CMO) of Rudraprayag and Chamoli during the ceremony and thanked local volunteers, ASHA Members and NGO partners for their work on the recent disaster.

“AmeriCares has been in the forefront, offering medical aid to the survivors of the disaster since June 13. They were one of the first to come with help and one of the most consistent. The people of Uttarakhand will never forget the help offered by AmeriCares in these trying times,” Mr. Negi said.

In response to the disaster, AmeriCares India has provided:

  • Health Care Services for 9,200 survivors

    AmeriCares provided 4,000 family and winter kits to protect more than 12,000 survivors from vector-borne diseases and extreme winters.
  • 3,000 Clean Delivery Kits for Emergency Home Births
    To ensure safety of mother and child during emergency home deliveries, AmeriCares is providing 1,500 Clean Delivery Kits each in Rudraprayag and Chamoli.

We are glad that with the cooperation of government officials, volunteers, partners and our donors we were able to make a difference in Uttarakhand,” said Mr. Shripad Desai, Managing Director of AmeriCares India Foundation.
