How Feeding India helped during Assam & Bihar Floods 

Last month, the states of Assam and Bihar witnessed devastating floods forcing millions to live amidst loss and destruction. The impact of the floods left many families without food and water; the loss of livelihood; as well as the loss of their loved ones. Thirty-three districts in Assam and 12 districts in Bihar were severely affected by the deluge – directly affecting over 4 million people. 

To help in any and every way possible, Feeding India initiated a relief fund in July 2019.

 

Through the fund, people contributed ₹54,70,100, which was used to prepare relief packs of all essential necessities along with food, water, medicines, torches, mosquito coils and clothes for small and large families. Across both the states, Feeding India volunteers (known as ‘Hunger Heroes’) have been working on-the-ground conducting relief camps and helped around 43,000+ people so far, serving 2,33,150 meals till date.

Starting in July and through August, successful donation drives have been conducted in six villages across East Champaran and Muzaffarpur, Bihar. Led by our Patna Feeding India city leader Aman Singh, with six other Hunger Heroes – we distributed 500+ relief packs and food, helping 2500+ people in need.

 

In Assam, 9 successful drives have been conducted across 20+ villages. Sachin Jha, city leader Feeding India (Guwahati) and Dwij Bhargav, city leader Feeding India (Jorhat), along with their teams of Hunger Heroes helped 41,000+ people with 8000+ relief packs in Teok, Kaziranga, Morigaon, Changsari and Majuli districts. Apart from procuring material and food through funds, many people in Jorhat came together to donate food and clothes towards the relief. 

While the floods have now started to recede, the journey to rehabilitation is still a long one for the locals. If you would like to contribute towards the relief efforts, we have set up collection points where you can donate food, clothes, medicines, sanitary items, and other basic amenities towards the aid of the flood victims.

True to our spirit of transparency, here’s a cent-to-cent account of how the collected funds were utilized in Assam and Bihar.
