Hyderabad India Floods Relief

Hyderabad India Floods Relief

Western and Southern India are reeling from widespread flooding. The death toll is expected to rise as 60 lives were already claimed. Water entering basements of apartments has destroyed 20,540 homes, in 144 colonies, affecting the lives of 35,000 families (almost quarter of a million people).

The City of Hyderabad, in the State of Telagana, is facing the brunt of the devastation with heavy rainfall. Damage to infrastructure, mainly homes and businesses, poses a threat to families seeking safety from the rising waters. An estimated $272+ million in damages has been reported.

Helping Hand USA has launched its Hyderabad India Floods Relief Campaign to help victims, with the assistance of our local vetted NGOs, with food-&-water, hygiene kits, medical assistance, and more.

Situation on the Ground

With over 10 inches of rainfall in the span of 24 hours, Hyderabad received the heaviest rainfall in over 20 years.

Residents are being encouraged to stay indoors to prevent them from injuries in flood waters. The threat of waterborne diseases and electrocutions is ever present. Monsoon season has caused widespread death and destruction, claiming over 1,000 lives and affected 9.6 million people across India.
