The State of Maharashtra was one of the high flood disaster sufferers this year, leaving thousands of people affected.
Excessive damage of properties, health, and food crisis, and massive disruption in essential facilities of water and sanitation made thousands of people vulnerable in the flood-affected areas of the State therefore during this emergency period our team in partnership with government and non-government organizations played a substantial role in minimizing the loss and damages through relief work initiatives like the door to door health services by doctors, distribution of WASH materials in relief camps, food kits, items like blankets and bedsheets, clothes, stationery, electrical, and cleaning kits. Medical camps in Chiplun were conducted by the Helping Hands Foundation, “Plastic Free Bottle Chiplun” campaign was launched by Alert Citizen Forum, CYDA with the support of UNICEF Maharashtra and Persistent Foundation was able to distribute WASH materials in Patan and non-food items in Satara district in Covid affected blocks.
RISE Infinity Foundation and the CYDA team distributed 152 kits in 4 villages of Sangli districts. We had a total of 20 volunteers who were engaged and provided support in relief camp initiatives.
Organizations like Alert Citizens Forum, Life Foundation, Helping Hand, Lions Club on Navi Mumbai, Garrimaa Foundation Universal, Bombay Catholic Sabha, and Vikas Sahyog Pratishthan were also actively involved in responding to the disaster relief providing aid to persons affected by the severe floods. Unicef Mumbai partnering with CYDA and CACR are covering 16 blocks from 5 flood affected districts to reach out to 24000 families and children with NFI, Hygiene-Dignity Kit and Education-Recreational materials with intensive hygiene promotion campaign.
