It is time we stop a hazard from becoming a disaster. Local communities have the knowledge and resilience.
EFICOR with its dedicated team reached 13741 households in Jammu & Kashmir that was devastated by one of the worst floods in 106 years. Access to local communities has been major bottleneck so the team used different modes of transportation to reach the affected places. Trucks helped in wading across the water logged areas in some places and whereas in other places boats were used to reach places situated on the banks of lakes and river Jhelum.
A month since the deluge hit the state of Jammu and Kashmir, causing massive destruction, lives are in disarray. Thousands of families who are displaced continue living in tents or with relatives and friends braving the chill autumn season. People who are in need, said, “We are not beggars, but extremely helpless and distressed”. People in both regions (Jammu and Kashmir) who lost houses, standing crops, livelihood and lives, have been uprooted in the one of the worst floods, are looking for help.
