HelpAge India team on ground at work 24x7, since June 21, providing primary medical relief and
distributing family food packages to those affected by the flash floods.
A massive convoy of 30 trucks loaded with 84 tonnes of HelpAge Relief packages are heading towards
the remotest villages of Districts Chamoli, Uttarkashi & Rudraprayag, some of the worst affected.
Sri.BVRC Purushottam IAS,The District Magistrate, Dehradun flagged off the consignments from
Relief package distribution by HelpAge India, with 3000 packages being distributed to 3000 families
across 99 villages in Chamoli, Uttarkashi & Rudraprayag.
Each package (weighing 28 kgs) includes: 10 kg Wheat flour, 10 kg Rice, 3 kg Arhar dal, 2 kg Sugar, 1 kg
Salt, 0.3 kg Spices (Chilli powder, Coriander powder andTurmeric powder), 1 ltr Mustard oil, 0.5 kg
Soya chunks, Washing soap, Detergent Soap and 10 match boxes.
Our Partners in the endeavour SBMA, Uttarkashi and AT India, Guptkashi would be helping out with
the door step delivery to the families - an exercise expected to take 07-10 days, given the connectivity
and the challenge of reaching remote and inaccessible villages.
Many roads have been cut off or badly damaged. The volunteers have to trek in many areas or go on
mule back carrying the supplies.The aim is to go where relief has not penetrated till now.
HelpAge India started immediate relief operations on June 21, 2013 and is committed to
continue through the Monsoons…….
