The pressing need at this moment is to provide Food, Clean drinking water, Hygiene kits, Shelter to protect people from extreme weather and other Non-Food items like tarpaulins, blankets, ground sheets, and a specially designed Oxfam bucket that prevents contamination of water, mugs, mosquito nets and water purification tablets among other relief items. 


We have distributed food items to 246 Households in the worst affected district, Lakhimpur and our stocks are already on the way to Karimganj district.


The current flood situation in Assam is critical and we need your help.

Story


Incessant monsoon rains have caused flooding in seven districts of Assam, namely Lakhimpur, Jorhat, Golaghat, Cachar, Dhemaji, Biswanath and Karimganj.


Two teams from Oxfam India have reached the worst hit districts—Lakhimpur and Karimgunj for a rapid assessment of the situation through consultations with the government officials, partners and community members.


We target to respond to 4500 households in the two target districts through distribution of contingency kits in collaboration with Sphere India, state and district administrations and other partner organisations.

About Oxfam India:


Oxfam India works to address root causes of poverty and inequality. We see poverty as a problem where people are deprived of opportunities, choices, resources, knowledge and protection. Poverty is something more than mere lack of income, health and education. It is also people's frustration on being excluded from decision-making. While the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the guiding framework under which Oxfam India functions, we also derive our mandate from the Constitutional Rights promised to every citizen of the country.


Persistent poverty and inequality is not just a violation of basic human rights of the people but it also undermines economic growth of a nation by wasting talents and human resources. It leads to a skewed society where power and decision-making remains in the hands of a few, leading to greater conflicts and undermining social cohesion. 


Oxfam seeks to address this through a Rights Based Approach where people are seen as the bearers of civil, political and social and economic rights. At the same time, institutions, both state and non-state, are seen as duty bearers to guarantee and provide those rights to the people. It is also important to underline that without augmenting people's ability to exercise them, the rights would be meaningless.
