Help In An Emergency: Bihar Flood Appeal 2017 #BiharFloods2017

Flooding in the last week of July has brought tremendous devastation impacting 18 districts in Assam, 24 districts in Bihar and 28 districts in Uttar Pradesh. There has been massive damage and loss of life and property.

You can lend your helping hand in bringing normalcy to the lives of lakhs of children and their families.

We have already begun our relief operations by partnering with local volunteers in the affected areas in order to meet our target of providing immediate relief and early recovery material.

The Immediate relief comprises of Water, Food, Non-Food Items (Tarpaulins, Hygiene kits, Floor mats, etc.) as well as other much needed items for the affected people.

In the past, we had helped an Afghan Refugee Family (You can read the story here: https://milaap.org/fundraisers/help-the-refugee-family) and had provided Ration Packs to 100+ families in the month of Ramadhan (You can read the story here: https://milaap.org/fundraisers/ramadhan-rationpack-2017).

Every bit of support counts in helping them move past the effects of this tragedy. With your support, we can help them bring back normalcy into their lives.

Following the relief work carried out in flood-affected areas of Uttar Pradesh, we were able to extend help in Bihar, by the will mercy and permission of God.  The relief materials were purchased and were distributed post packaging.
The relief items were distributed at Phulwaria and Dostia village, Dhaka area, Bihar.
Everyone, including children from a local Madarsa, Qari Mujtaba Sahab, and even the Drivers of the relief truck were involved in the distribution process.
All of this wouldn't have been possible without God’s help and your generous donations. 










At present we're planning on setting up handpumps in various flood-affected areas. Thank you so much for the support.

We visited the following flood affected areas in Uttar Pradesh on Aug 31, 2017.
 
District: Bahraich
Tehsil: Qaiserganj
Village: Mangal Mela
 
District: Bahraich
Tehsil: Qaiserganj
Village: Katariad
 
District: Bahraich
Tehsil: Naanpara
Village:  Bhutaniya

While Mangal Mela and Katariad had already received much help after water had receeded, Bhutaniya being surrounded by Saryu river from three sides, had suffered a lot. Farms devastated, lives lost, properties destroyed and much more.

We worked till 9:45 at night in these areas, trying to extend help to those who were genuinely affected. While our idea was to first conduct a survey, followed by extending help post eīd, we couldn't stop ourselves after meeting these people.

Bhutaniya has a total population of 1100 people and we spent enough time in identifying the beneficiaries. Those, whose houses were devastated were given money to repair/build their houses, while others with help for food. Sweets were distributed among children to bring a smile to their beautiful faces.

We also extended help in the form of medical aid. Below are some images from the above districts:

The team visited Cheetanpurva and Kabadeyanpurva villages in District Bahraich on 01 Sep 2017. Yes, it took us 2 days to cover the flood affected areas of 1 district alone.

The condition of Cheetanpurva and Kabadeyanpurva was worse than the villages visited earlier. The total population of Cheetanpurva is ~500, while that of Kabadeyanpurva is ~350.

We took the entire day to identify the beneficiaries of these two villages, and provided them with financial aid to repair and rebuild their villages. We also distributed sweets to children like yesterday. 

Our work isn't complete! While we're returning for Eīd, our team will go back post Eīd and visit other districts and In Shā'Allāh help will be extended in Bihar as well.

Following are some of the images from 01 September 2017's visit.

I ask Allāh to forgive our shortcomings, and accept it from all of us.

A big Jazākum'Allāhu'Khayran to all the donors.
