Once again in the grip of a major flood, the state of Assam is reeling under the extreme havoc that the torrential rains have caused. The floods have completely ruptured normal life in the state. Over 12 lakh people have been displaced and 35 people have been reported dead. The floods have also claimed 490,000 acres of farm lands along with an abundance of wildlife.

The transport systems have been crippled, people have been rendered homeless and crops have been destroyed, leading to loss of lives and livelihood. The rains are still pouring relentlessly and high alert persists, continuing to daunt the survivors. Relief efforts are being dampened as many of the affected districts are still submerged under water, making remote villages accessible only by makeshift-boats.

Our Intervention

Reacting to the pressing needs and tenacity of the situation in Assam, Smile Foundation’s Disaster Response Team is already on the ground – assessing the urgent needs of the affected people. An early relief effort has been initiated to distribute relief kits and necessary supplies, along with focus on providing essential health services.

In a post-flood situation, health becomes a critical issue and an outbreak of epidemics is a fatal possibility. The difficult terrain, devastated roads and lack of proper healthcare infrastructure have further worsened the situation. To address this crucial need, Smile Foundation is deploying health camps in the worst hit villages to address the immediate medical needs of the survivors. The camps will be providing basic health check-ups, medical diagnosis, pathological test facilities, and free of cost medicines to the affected families.
