APPEAL – For the Affected in Uttarakhand and Himachal
Uttarakhand, Himachal and adjoining areas have been hit by torrential rain, landslides and flash floods. The erratic weather conditions have been attributed to early monsoons in Northern India due to which early warnings were not provided and people have been affected adversely. River Ganges and its major tributaries of Alaknanda and Bhagirathi have swelled up, causing widespread destruction downstream. Kinnaur district in Himachal Pradesh, has received the highest rainfall in 20 years over the last three days.
Corporate Disaster Resource Network (CDRN), implemented by Aidmatrix Foundation, created under the Corporate Task Force of the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) is organizing a dispatch of Relief Material with a base at Joshimath where relief agencies are assessing, coordinating and implementing relief efforts. Dispatches are being coordinated in two processes i.e., collections and dispatch to the nearest accessible regions and then locally thereof through field officers to reach the last mile where vehicles are not reaching.
This does mean that individuals will be covering large distances on foot to deliver support. Due to the present weather conditions the accessibility will be un- predictable but we are working towards a hub and spoke intervention for timely deliveries to help those that need it the most.
We are working towards a comprehensive coordinated response for near term and long term appeal to join hands and provide relief to the affected immediately and later for rehabilitation needs that will be there.
