Immediate-term Response

Extending immediate relief support

We extend immediate relief in the form of hygiene kits, ration, tarpaulin, and medicines to communities affected by disasters. We have responded to disasters in Madhubani District, Bihar, Soreng Chakung, Sikkim and Lakhimpur District, Assam, South 24 Parganas District, West Bengal, and Kendrapara District, Odisha

16,500+ disaster-hit individuals supported with immediate relief in 2020-21.

Despite COVID-19 and lockdown, our commitment to other disaster response initiatives which affected different parts of the country during the last year remained intact. The initiative also gave us a unique opportunity for inter-agency collaboration to support different activities and to ensure that benefits are delivered on time.
