Assam Floods: Reliance Foundation on Ground to Relief Several Worst Affected Districts

Reliance Foundation presented Rs 25 crore to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund on Friday to assist Assamese citizens affected by the recent floods that have severely damaged the state. Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma, the chief minister of Assam, conveyed his appreciation by writing on social media, “My sincere gratitude to Mukesh and Anant Ambani for supporting the Assam people at this pivotal time. This will significantly improve our flood relief efforts “.

Following a nearly month-long relief operation that Reliance Foundation has supported in Assam in conjunction with the State Government and civil society organisations, a contribution has been made to the CM Relief’s Fund. With a team on the ground, Reliance Foundation quickly responded to the flood situation. Together with the district administrations, Assam State Disaster Management Authority, Health & Family Welfare Department, National Health Mission, Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Department, and other civil society organisations, they worked to provide relief and lessen the suffering brought on by floods.

While relief activities are ongoing in the Kathiatoli, Raha, Nagaon Sadar, and Kampur blocks of the Nagaon district, Reliance Foundation is supporting immediate relief efforts in the Silchar, Kalain, Borkhola, and Katigoarh blocks of the Cachar district.

Emergency relief packages are being provided and medical camps are being staged. The Cachar and Nagaon districts, which are among the worst-affected after weeks of incessant rain in the state, have also hosted a number of livestock camps. Over 1,900 people have been examined and treated for a variety of flooding-related health concerns since the camps opened on June 1. In livestock camps, more than 10,400 animals have received care.
