Annual flooding in Assam and Bihar causes severe disruption to the lives of lakhs of people each year. Bihar alone accounts for about 30-40% of the flood damages in India 22.1% of the total flood affected population in India is reported to be located. Bihar Floods 2020 have, as on the 22nd of July, 2020, affected over 4.6 lakh people and the Assam Floods have affected over 26.3 lakh people. 40% of land in Assam is flood-prone and most of Bihar, 73% per cent of the total land area, is vulnerable to flood.
So far eight districts in Bihar and 26 districts in Assam have been affected by floods, and as the number continues to rise, victims of the floods need to be provided immediate and effective relief.
In the current situation with the spread of COVID-19, people are finding it difficult to access the usual institutions providing relief camps or are themselves hesitant to stay there. They are also finding it challenging to access the relief usually expected during such crisis and facilities other than food are becoming more difficult to access as the attention of the government agencies is diverted to addressing issues related to the pandemic.
