Over 300,000 people have been affected by the recent floods in Indian states of Manipur and Gujarat. Hundreds have been displaced and are now are in need of humanitarian assistance. 

Oxfam is on the ground delivering safe water, and ensuring food security through cash transfers to over 18,000 women, men and children in the two states. 

In Manipur, Oxfam plans to reach around 12,000 people over the next two months with emergency food assistance including cash transfer, safe water provisioning and provide critical shelter support in the form of solar lighting. 

In Gujarat, the main focus of our efforts has been on providing emergency shelter and cash transfer to some of the worst affected villages in Banaskantha and Patan district. These areas have been hit by flash floods and have lost critical productive livelihood assets. 

Both Banaskantha and Patan are semi arid areas and people were not prepared for the flash floods.
