Kumarkhand;flood relief

Kumarkhand block flood relief

Boat sent to help us by Ms.Kiran Devi (Sarpanch) & her husband Amarnath Ji (AMURT). We had requested help from them(cellphone) after we got stuck in shallow water and the other ITBP motorboat with Doctors & relief material were lost somewhere near the 8KM mark.

We are very greatful to them for all the help they provided. It is very difficult to manage panic striken, hungry and angry population if you are cut off from mainland by 15-20 km of water for more than two months. 

To their credit, they have managed the emergencies and the sustained flood conditions very nicely.
