    from Haflong, Assam

Story

It is a stormy afternoon. Imagine you and your family live happily in a small home on the side of a hill and are about to have lunch together. Suddenly, all hell breaks loose and you are being washed away by a devilish current of water. You are floating farther and farther away and all you can do is pray and survive the situation. You helplessly gaze around and see debris of houses and trees and animals floating away. Something similar happened in Haflong.


Haflong is a beautiful hill station situated in the Dima Hasao district of Assam. The lush green hills and lakes have made this place an attractive tourist spot for all. However, for the past few days it has been raining incessantly resulting in flash floods in Haflong and many areas of the Dima Hasao district. To add to this, landslides have made the situation even worse. It has disrupted the transportation in many areas. The railway station is no more and in its place are overturned trains and destroyed platforms. The roads are blocked due to landslides and bridges that used to connect places in the town are absent, washed away by the violent waters. Network connectivity is lost and families who stay outside are not able to contact their near and dear ones who reside in Haflong. Many houses have been washed away by the floods and it has resulted in severe damage to life and property. More than 2 lakh people have been affected all across the district and the lives of 5 have been claimed by this grim calamity.

The aim of this donation campaign is to collect 1 lakh INR within a week and provide relief to the families who have suffered injuries and damage of property. Furthermore, many families have lost their livelihoods due to the floods and landslides. Hence the donations shall be utilized to help them survive and sustain their families for the present moment.

Utilization of funds:-

1. Food distribution
2. Medical Care
3. Other necessities

Therefore we request you to kindly contribute to this cause. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE donate as much as you can and save the lives of the affected families and share this donation link as much as you can on all social media platforms. 
We thank you from the bottom of our heart for your kind help to the people of Haflong in these trying times. We shall update the status of the families you have helped soon after our target is achieved and the funds are received by the affected families.
