Incessant and excessive rains have triggered massive flooding in large parts of India with more than 5 million people being affected in Assam, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. Thousands of families have taken shelter on the roofs of their submerged huts and houses along the banks of the river. Thousands of villages are inundated. Several roads, bridges, embankment, schools and other public infrastructure are badly damaged. Road transportation and communication have been interrupted in many places in these states.

In Bihar, where at least six rivers including the Ganga are flowing above the danger mark, over 10,000 people from over 100 villages have taken shelter in relief camps. The situation in Uttar Pradesh is also alarming and people living in the low-lying areas have been told to vacate their homes and move to safer places. In Madhya Pradesh, normal life has been affected in Guna, Rajgarh, Shivpuri, Mandsour, Ujjain as major rivers, including Retam, Chambal, Shivna, Kshipra and Sindh are in spate.Meanwhile, the flood situation in Assam has improved marginally. But lakhs of people are still affected in as many as 19 districts. People have lost their homes, belongings, their agricultural produce and livestock.Our teams with support from our allied organisations and volunteers have been responding to the immediate needs of communities in all these states. Our priority at this moment is to reach out to the most vulnerable and marginalised families who suffer the most when disasters strike.
