    from Guwahati, Assam

I, Antara Buzarbaruah come from this beautiful state called Assam in the northeastern region of India. It is any nature and wildlife lovers favourite place to be in. The river Brahmaputra which is one of the largest rivers in India flows through Assam giving livelihoods to many.  I have spent almost all my life here enjoying the greenery, the wildlife and the lovely people around. One thing that disturbs this beautiful state is the heavy rainfall that the state witnesses every year, increasing the water level of the river. It not only takes away lives of people, but their livelihoods and the wildlife whose home is in this state. 
This time the floods have taken an extremely unfortunate turn, where affected people are not only battling the global pandemic Covid19 but also struggling with the displacement that comes along with the floods which forces them to stay in groups of many. So far 113 people have died due to floods and landslides in Assam and 29 lakh people have been displaced from their homes. The displaced people find solace in make shift camps with basic to no resources to survive and restore their lives. It takes them months and sometimes years to restore what they lost. 
This fund that I am raising is going to go a charity organisation named We  For You based out of Assam who are tirelessly working  towards flood relief and rehabilitation in affected areas of Tezpur. The fund raised will be used towards women's hygiene and essential items.  
I urge you to donate the little you can to help them.
