We have witnessed the extensive destruction of life and property caused by the sudden floods in the Uttarakhand region in 2013. 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 shortage of food, shelter and other basic amenities needed for survival in these areas.
