The recent spate of large-scale riots in Assam, according to conservative estimates, has claimed 53 lives and over 3 lakh victims have been displaced. Men, women and children have been killed, schools and houses are burnt. Kokrajhar, Chirang and Dhubri districts of northeast are the worst hit among five affected districts, the two others being Bongaigaon and Baksa.
IAHV volunteers are currently working towards restoring lives of the victims in the affected areas. Our response involves providing immediate material aid at our relief camps, releasing trauma through relief workshops and restoring hope. As a short term rehabilitation plan, we aim at fostering personal responsibility of individuals through service and mentorship programs conducted by community volunteers that empower self-reliance.
IAHV urges people to help the victims in whatever way possible. The victims are critically in need of food, clean water, shelter, medical facility, trauma relief & many basic necessities. All contributions will be directed to the provision of any immediate material aid, food, water trauma & medical relief. In addition short term rehabilitation projects will be initiated to restore the lives of the displaced victims by overcoming the trauma.
