SRLC provides emergency relief towards the Gujarat floods
The Indian state of Gujarat witnessed devastating floods in the month of July. Several districts were inundated by floods with Banaskantha and Patan being the worst affected. As a result of this natural disaster, more than 200 people lost their lives, over 10 lakh homes were damaged, and more than 80,000 people were forced to migrate to safer zones. Even the area of Dharampur was adversely affected by the floods.
Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care, under its Emergency Relief Care programme, responded immediately to this situation by providing assistance and support to the victims of the floods. Working in close association with the government of Gujarat and other NGOs, SRLC distributed kits containing clothes, blankets and medicines to those affected. Additionally, Shrimad Rajchandra Hospital organised a medical camp for the victims in order to provide emergency medical attention to injuries and illnesses. Students of Shrimad Rajchandra Gurukul and Shrimad Rajchandra Vidyapeeth also participated in the relief activities.
SRLC also donated Rs 61 lakhs to the Chief Minister's Relief Fund towards the relief efforts for the Gujarat Floods. Shri Vijaybhai Rupani, Chief Minister of Gujarat, appreciated our contribution and charitable initiatives.
More than 4000 helpless animals also lost their lives due to the floods. Standing true to our philosophy to provide help to all living beings, SRLC’s Animal Care extended support to panjrapoles (animal shelters) through which more than 1.5 lakh animals would benefit.
