India was just beginning to recover from the devastation of January's powerful earthquake in Gujarat when heavy rains in July brought destruction to Orissa, India. Then, last month, more heavy rains forced officials in Andhra Pradesh, in southern India, to open floodgates unleashing a rush of water strong enough to destroy homes and lives. In addition to those killed by the latest round of rains, some 46,000 people have been evacuated to relief camps.

India was just beginning to recover from the devastation of January's powerful earthquake in Gujarat, when heavy rains in July brought destruction to Orissa. Together, these two disasters took more than 30,000 lives and left hundreds of thousands homeless and vulnerable to diseases such as malaria and diarrhea. It takes time for a country to recover from destruction like this. Homes must be rebuilt. Food must be replaced. Whole communities will have to find a way to start over again while families are missing mothers, fathers and children.
