Flood Relief Operation : 2008

The leftover amount from last year was 89823.

Majority of the people who donated for flood relief last year want to spend the left over money to this year flood relief work.

We have purchased 150x1000 chlorine tablets from Hind Pharma. The tablets are delivered at Patna and we are in the process of Delivering these tablets to flood affected areas in Forbesganj.

We have ordered for 300x1000 chlorine tablets from Hind Pharma and send the tablets to Chandan who is coordinating flood relief work in Patna.

We also send 25K money to Chandan's account so that he can purchase the items necessary for relief work locally.

Updates on 12th Aug

Saturday 9th aug; I had discussions with NGO coordinators in Muzaffarpur; the flood situation was classified as normal with lookout warning in 3 blocks; Katra, Aurai and Gaighat. However, yesterday evening, I got a call that the flood situation has worsened in Aurai block and about 1200 families have moved on the embankment, taking shelter there. There has been rainfall and rise in Nepal fed rivers. As of now,these panchayats are affected;about 1500 families, mainly in Aurai block: Vishnupur Basant,Bharathua,Amnaur,JanarthSarhachiya,AmanaurPitojhiaBenipur.I suggest we start our flood relief effort now.
We will need water purification tablets ( chlorene tabs) , ORS, anti fungal creme, paracetamol/analgesics, cough & cold medication, salt, candles, matchboxes...and other materials depending upon the ground condition. We will start with ORS sachets & bleaching powder immediately and they can be procured locally. Order can be placed for chlorine tablets either from Bhopal/ Mumbai/Calcutta. The chlorine tablets that Tanya ji sent last year are of better quality than the ones we got from Bhopal. Kindly let me know your suggestions on this years Flood Relief Op(FRO) The apparent good news is that the intensity of floods will not be as bad as last year.
