Flood relief – update

Photos from last week in Kancheepuram district, show the damage in the 20 villages where Assisi works. We are distributing food parcels to families in the most impacted areas. Each food pack contains: 50kg rice, oil, dal, herbs, soap, spices and lentils.

Our staff have reported that while rains have eased for the time being, the loss of property, livelihoods and life is devastating. Further financial help is urgently required, especially to repair housing, provide basic shelter, sanitation facilities, dry sleeping materials, as well as cooking utensils and education supplies which have been either washed away or damaged.

We have a team of 9 staff in Uthiramerur, as well as 20 tutors in the villages – who are facilitating emergency relief work.
Assisi is seeking donations, so we can provide further support with housing, bedding, and more food supplies. Please help by donating at: https://www.givenow.com.au/assisidonations
