Open Your Hearts to Villagers in Uttarakhand


More than 3 weeks after heavy rains and landslides hit Uttarakhand, thousands of villagers still lack proper food, medicine, and shelter.   Just yesterday, seven people were killed in Chamoli when their house collapsed.  The official death toll is over 5,300 but rising. Over 6,000 are missing.

All the schools in the flood-affected area are closed, and many families lost their homes, businesses, and livestock.  Traumatized by the carnage and separated from their loved ones, thousands of children are risk for trafficking.  But with your help, India Development and Relief Fund can make a huge difference in their lives.

IDRF is in the process of designing a sustainable rehabilitation program in cooperation with credible local NGOs.  We need your support at this critical stage.  With a consultant on the ground and 25 years of disaster rehab experience, IDRF will use your hard-earned money effectively and responsibly.
