    Published on August 20, 2019

    New Delhi: This year again, devastating floods have struck several states leading to heavy losses of lives and property – over 17 million[i] lives have been impacted. As heavy downpour continues to hit several parts of the country which includes Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Assam and Bihar, SEEDS (Sustainable Environment and Ecological Development Society) is reaching out to the worst-affected communities in key districts of Maharashtra (Solapur, Kolapur and Sangli), Karnataka (Belgaum), Kerala (Wayanad, Mallapuram), Assam (Chirang, Dhemaji) and Bihar (Sitamarhi) with safe drinking water, hygiene kits, medical camps, school education materials and homes that can help families bounce back from their state of despair.

    With its 25 years of experiences, SEEDS believes in starting recovery efforts alongside immediate relief right from the beginning. Restoring homes, schools and health centers helps build long-term security and resilience among people. People affected by these floods need support in building a strong and robust defence against such unpredictable weather phenomena. Enabling resilience is the critical need of the hour.
