Kerala and Uttarakhand have witnessed torrential rains and devastating flood that have ravaged lives of people in the state since 14-16 October, 2021.
The Mundakayam panchayat, of Kottayam, Kerala having a total population of 38,445 has reported 61 houses have been washed away and more than 450 houses have been damaged. On the other hand, a population of more than 1100 has been impacted in village Jhutiya, Uttarakhand due to incessant rains followed by landslides. 50% of the land has been damaged and around 100 houses raised to the ground, leaving many trapped in the debris.
Most of the people living in the Mundakayam and Jhutiya panchayats are from economically weaker sections like daily-wage earners, plantation workers and farmers and who barely manage to make their ends meet.
As per our team on the ground in the village and Rekha Das and K.R. Suresh, Village heads there is an urgent need to provide access to hygiene items and essential items since most of their belongings have been washed away. Water sources in the area like community wells require urgent cleaning to cater to the drinking water needs. The ongoing adverse impact of Covid-19, additional challenges posed by the flood hence calls for urgent humanitarian appeal.
