Nearly 6 million people in India have been forced to flee their homes as the worst monsoon floods in more than a decade hit the remote areas of Assam. More than one hundred people are missing or dead.
Nearly all of the homes, farms and businesses are under water. Camps of temporary relief shelters have been set up in the few elevated villages.
We are responding to this disaster through our partner Emmanuel Hospital Association, a locally based organization with a network of disaster relief medical and health professionals in the underserved areas of rural North India.
Together, we are delivering water purification systems for shelters, medical services and nutritional supplements for children. We are also helping control the spread of infectious diseases.
