At present, all major rivers of Bihar are flowing above the danger level which has submerged thousands of villages. This year's Bihar flood has been highly destructive and the presence of the COVID-19 has created other complications. These overlapping disasters have not only affected the crops, livelihood and loss of lands but it has also become a threat to the survival of a large population.
The North Bihar has been particularly affected by the flood and most of the flood-affected families do not have any access to food and other essential supplies. Thus, we are raising funds to support these people. Please donate to our campaign and if possible, share it with others as well.
Approach and Action Plan:
We are based out of Gopalganj district in North Bihar and with the help of volunteers will be directly delivering the essentials to the affected families.
We will be making kits of essentials materials. The average cost of each kit is ₹1300 ($17).
Each kit will contain:
1. Tarpaulin (1 Pc) : ₹600
2. Sanitary Napkins (1 packet): ₹200
3. Water Bottles (3): ₹ 45
4. Flattened Rice (Chivda, 5 kg): ₹200
5. Jaggery (2 kg): ₹100
6. Biscuit(2 Packets): ₹40
7. Milk Powder: ₹100
This is the tentative list of materials, it can vary according to the requirement of each family. In the first phase, we want to support 200 families.
To help the affected population your support is required hence we decided to initiate a fund-raising campaign through various modes. We are using different strategies for fundraising:
1. Online Fund-Raising Campaign
2. Individual contacts with the philanthropist
3. Volunteers using their contacts for the collection of money
Bihar Students Collective is a non-partisan group which is involved in Flood relief works and wants to help a maximum number of people by the donation coming from this campaign. We will be using the donated money to provide a supply of essential materials to the flood-affected people. We encourage people from around the world to be part of this cause help the people in need.
