Millions of people have been displaced due to the floods and need immediate relief and support. According to Assam State Disaster Management Authority, Brahmaputra river and its tributaries are flowing above the danger level in most of the affected districts. In Guwahati, the flood waters of the Brahmaputra have submerged many areas. According to officials, unusual torrential rainfall and subsequent massive discharge of water in rivers led to flash floods in Bihar.


Indo-Global Social Service Society (IGSSS) team is responding to provide disaster relief in close conjunction with local government and civil society partners. All donations received will support immediate relief efforts for areas in the flood affected areas of Assam and Bihar. Initially, the donations received will help first res-ponders meet immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter.

Long-Term Impact

Your support will help the people displaced due to these massive floods to fulfill their immediate basic needs. We will reassess the situation once things on the ground are settled and work with the community, government and civil society partners to restore normalcy in the lives of the victims. IGSSS is coordinating with the government, working with local partners and other non-governmental organizations to ensure maximum support to the worst affected marginalized people.
