Ramakrishna Mission Uttarakhand Flood Relief Work Report (update)

as on 26.06.2013 (further reports awaited)

In the wake of the unprecedented devastation caused by cloud-burst and flash floods in a major portion of Uttarakhand, Ramakrishna Mission, Belur Math has undertaken relief work in the affected areas through its Kankhal (Haridwar) centre. 

A relief camp has been established at a place called Agastya Muni on the bank of Alakananda River, about 25 kms from Rudra Prayag and 60 kms below Kedarnath. The relief team at present consists of 6 Monastics, 2 Doctors, 1 Pharmacist and 4 others. The river has cut the life line of the villages of Rudraprayag district. The sufferings and agony of the people are immense. Even our relief team has survived with rice and lentils for the last one week. Ramakrishna Mission is one of the very few organisations providing basic food materials and health care services. The people of the hills with tears in their eyes are desperately seeking help and support.

Dry food packets {each packet containing bread, chira (flattened rice), atta (flour), roasted grams, sugar, milk powder, rusk, puri, pickle, sweets, candle, match boxes, etc.}, baby food and drinking water are being distributed among thousands of affected people. Moreover, a Medical Camp consisting of a team of dedicated doctors has also been established nearby, providing much-needed primary medical relief to the affected people. The relief work will be further expanded depending upon the then pressing situation. 

While thanking all who contributed for this noble cause, we request others to come forward and donate liberally, to help us in this noble endeavour. All donations paid in cash or by cheque / demand draft drawn in favour of "Shri Ramakrishna Ashrama, Rajkot" are exempt from income tax under section 80‐G of the I.T.
