Contribute to flood relief activities in Bihar!

In the unprecedented calamity that has struck Bihar, around 20 lac people are stranded. The following months are going to bring more challenges, but the immediate need is to rescue people. If you want to contribute through the people/organizations/NGOs working on ground, we are collecting some information here. If you know of any efforts, or have any news of stranded people, please do add through comments or e-mail at biharflood@yahoo.com

One of the immediate needs is that of more boats for rescuing people. Do you know organizations or people that can help and transport boats there is next 24 to 48 hours? Please do let us know. We are in touch with AID India volunteers on the ground.

  4. you might want to visit http://www.biharfloods.osf.in

    They list the details of 75+ organisations working on flood relief in Bihar. They have details like collection centres, items being collected, area of operation in Bihar, contact person etc for every org.I think they are also planning to have citywise listings so that people can know the nearest contact point for them. I also found their section on daily statistics and maps very useful
