North East Floods 2018: Oxfam is responding

Torrential rains have affected over 13 lakh people and 60 lives have been lost across North East.

People have lost their home, livelihood and belongings yet again. They are now living in relief camps where even basic amenities like clean drinking water and sanitation facilities are not available. Devastating floods have battered North East India again. 

Oxfam India Response in Assam, Tripura and Manipur.

Oxfam India is working tirelessly on the ground to provide relief to the worst affected households.
1. We have been able to help over 2400 families in North East.
2. We continue to distribute hygiene kits, shelter kits, water purifying tablets, dry food ration, install temporary toilets and chlorinated hand pumps.
3. We are also conducting public health awareness programs in the most affected areas and are spreading awareness about Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH).
