Nishtaa NGO worked in Uttarakhand and supported the relief efforts at the time of flood in the year of 2013. Children and elders were the most vulnerable in that situation. We have all been witnessed the extensive destruction of life and property caused by the sudden flood in the Uttarakhand region. Thousands of people have died, towns and livelihoods have been devastated and many thousands of people remain stranded and vulnerable, waiting to be rescued and evacuated. There was acute shortage of food, shelter and other basic amenities needed for survival in these areas. We worked to supply them with the food, shelter, water and protection reached them in the affected areas of the state.
We have reached 372 individuals during the emergency relief phase. We have also received the Authorization Letter to work on “Rehabilitation and Recovery Intervention in Rudraprayag” from District Magistrate, Rudraprayag. On the basis of which we have conducted rehabilitation operations for the victims of the flashflood in Chamoli, Uttarkashi, Rudraprayag and Pithoragarh Districts in Uttarakhand. We also worked to help out the victims, aimed at collecting and sending urgent relief materials (rice, pulses, biscuits, blankets, woolens, sanitary napkins, utensils, torches batteries, candles, water and milk bottles etc.) and essential medicines (Betadine, First Aid kits, Hydrogen Peroxide and vitamins). We opened computer and stitching learning center at village Korkhi, Bhesari and Rudrprayag to give trainings to the victims for employment or self employment.
