About the Fundraiser

Floods devastate lives. People have lost their homes in Assam, as well as their agricultural produce, personal valuables and livestock, all of which they depended on for their livelihood. The full extent of their suffering is becoming visible only now. Without access to clean water and shelter, they are particularly vulnerable at this time. Hand pumps are contaminated with flood water; open defecation and debris have become matters of concern. Stagnant water too poses the risk of water-borne diseases like diarrhoea, malaria and dengue.

Oxfam’s team is tirelessly working in the worst hit districts to provide urgent assistance for flood survivors to cope. Among them is Jorhat, which has seen its biggest flood since 1998. The priority is to make available Hygiene kits, Shelter and other Non-Food items like tarpaulins, blankets, ground sheets, a specially designed Oxfam bucket that prevents contamination of water, mugs, mosquito nets and water purification tablets among other relief items. Oxfam has already reached out to 1,483 flood affected families. Your support can make sure more families receive lifesaving support
