As the raging monsoons continue to wreck havoc in northern India, millions of people are forced out of their homes due to floods and landslides. In flood ravaged states of Bihar and Assam, people are struggling to meet their basic needs of food, shelter, healthcare. With 440 people dead, 10.8 million people marooned by flood waters, Bihar is among the worst hit. Pragya team is reaching out to people in flood affected villages in Araria and Kishangunj districts of Bihar.

Your support can help us expand our relief efforts, and cater to the needs of thousands more who require assistance.
