    This fundraiser will benefit

    Flood Victims

    from Assam and Bihar

80G tax benefits for INR donations

As the country is fighting with exponentially increasing cases of COVID-19, Assam and Bihar are faced with the double impact of the pandemic as well as the yearly recurring floods which has taken a dangerous turn this year. With rivers overflowing and dams breaking down in these states, the sorrows of the people know no bounds. As their homes, farms, livestock are washed away, they are battling to survive amidst a new wave of coronavirus cases. The floods in Assam and Bihar that have taken over 120 human lives and countless animal lives, have affected over 1 crore people in both states.

Under such circumstances, ActionAid Association, an organization that is spread throughout the country, is working towards the relief of people worst hit by the floods. As of July 2020, ActionAid has reached out to over 3164 families in over 66 villages across four districts in Assam - Barpeta, Dhemaji, Morigaon, and Golaghat with food and other essential relief. In Bihar, relief materials were distributed to 155 families from four flood-affected villages in Muzaffarpur district. These families belonged to the Dalit (Musahar) community. In the coming weeks, as the water starts receding, the efforts to reach out with relief will intensify and the need for resources has also increased.

I have decided to start a fundraiser to support ActionAid Association in its relief work for Assam and Bihar floods. Like most of you, I am stuck behind the four walls of my house and feeling helpless, both physically and financially for not being able to help those in need. But we can all help in our own little ways.

Hence, I have launched this campaign called “Portrait for a Cause.” I am asking people to donate Rs. 250 or more to ActionAid Association and in return, I will gift them a personalized digital portrait. All you have to do is download the payment receipt of the donation you have made on Milaap and email it to me at raishadesigns@gmail.com, along with a portrait photo of your choice that you would like me to illustrate. I will confirm your order and send you a digital portrait in return. To check out my artwork, visit my page on Instagram @raishadesigns.

Please note: 
1. I will be gifting only ONE single character portrait per donation. 
2. Since I will be creating a number of portraits and it is a very time-consuming process, I will not be able to make changes to the artworks I send you
3. Lastly, it's a one-woman team, so please be a little patient and give me enough time to create a digital portrait for you

Thank You.
