Uttarakhand is once again reeling under sorrow, as torrential rains continue to wreak havoc and disrupt normal life in the state. More than 30 people have reported dead since heavy rains triggered cloudbursts in several districts of Uttarakhand last week, with Pithoragarh and Chamoli being the worst hit. Many more are still missing, feared dead or buried under the debris.

Rains are flooding Uttarakhand’s rivers and have already started triggering sporadic landslides, which have completely crippled the state’s transport system besides claiming large swathes of agricultural lands, property and precious lives. High alert remains to daunt the people as the MeT department has predicted heavy rainfall in the coming weeks in many other regions in the state.

Our Intervention

Reacting to the pressing needs and tenacity of the situation, Smile Foundation’s Disaster Response Team is already on the ground – assessing the urgent needs of the affected people. An early relief effort has been initiated to distribute relief kits and necessary supplies, along with focus on providing essential health services.

In a post-flood situation, health becomes a critical issue and an outbreak of epidemics is a fatal possibility. The hilly terrains, devastated roads and infrastructure have further worsened the situation. As scattered and disconnected villages make static health centres largely ineffective, Smile Foundation is deploying health camps and mobile health clinic in the worst hit areas to address the immediate medical needs of the survivors. The camps will be providing basic health check-ups, medical diagnosis, pathological test facilities, and free of cost medicines to the affected families.

Smile Foundation had acted promptly during the disastrous 2013 floods in Uttarakhand, and besides the immediate relief response, had also started a long-term rehabilitation project in the then worst affected Rudraprayag District. The project, supported by the Union Bank of India, is ongoing and is currently benefitting more than 24,500 people every year in more than 24 villages of the Ukimath Block. The core team from the project has combined forces with the Disaster Response Team to maximise the efforts on ground zero.

Join hands with Smile Foundation to aid the relief efforts in Uttarakhand and help the survivors.
