ACT Appeal India: Assistance to flood affected people - ASIN54 (Revision 1)


Appeal Target: US$ 641,383

Geneva, 13 December 2005

Dear Colleagues,

This year many parts of India have been affected by severe flooding. The ACT members Church's Auxiliary for Social Action (CASA), the Lutheran World Service India (LWSI) and the United Evangelical Church in India (UELCI) have been responding with their own funding as well as through Appeals: ASIN51 for Gujarat & Madhya Pradesh; ASIN52 for Maharashtra and ASIN53 for Andhra Pradesh. West Bengal and Tamil Nadu are currently affected by floods. The ACT-CO has decided to issue just one more appeal for floods, which will incorporate any further needed flood responses by the ACT members in India for 2005.

This revision is being made to include a proposal from UELCI for the most vulnerable flood affected in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradhesh. The proposal comprises assistance in the form of food and non-food items as well as health care services.

For the sake of brevity this revision comprises the UELCI proposal for Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh only. For information on LWSI's proposed activities in West Bengal please refer to the original appeal of 17 November.

Reports are still coming in of rains continuing in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, including Chennai where the ACT Programme Officer is currently meeting with ACT members. These weather conditions are exceptional for the time of year and causing further hardship to the more vulnerable people who are still struggling under the effects of the tsunami and/or the usual monsoon rains. We strongly urge our donors to consider funding in support of this appeal.

Project Completion Date:

LWSI - 31 July 2006
UELCI - 31 March 2006
