  • Need

    Need

    In the emergency situation, there is an urgency to provide shelter, clean drinking water, food and medical care. These are the basic necessities required to prevent further lives being lost. Ultimately, we would like to help people rebuild their lives. This will take time but we are committed to supporting them throughout this difficult time.

    Solution

    In such desperate times, people are resorting to drinking contaminated water to stay alive. Access to clean drinking water will inevitably reduce the health implications and deaths related to waterborne diseases. With entire villages being destructed, access to medical care is also essential for those stranded in the areas hit by the floods. Our main focus right now is to help save lives.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To provide emergency aid to the millions affected by the destructive floods.

    Activities

    » Distribute family food packs - one food pack will feed a family of 6 people.
    » Emergency shelter - Put up tents and provide duvets, particularly as the winter is approaching.
    » Distribute clean drinking water
    » Open mobile health clinics - providing medical advice and medication from volunteer doctors and healthcare professionals.

    Success will be achieved by providing relief to those in urgent need.
