Flood relief in Jammu & Kashmir

Relief:  Flood victims receiving blankets and tents

Reasi, Jammu & Kashmir: Privileged ones share with those in need or the less privileged says Gurudev, and his devotees act accordingly. The flood victims of Jammu &Kashmir were provided with tents, clothes, blankets and ration, and nearly 100 families of Reasi district, one of the worst affected areas, benefitted from this.

Relief material was distributed in two phases in Satoi, Kotli, Sirla, Bhaga, Karayanee, Chaurakot nestled between Smakh, Gaintha and Dingakot villages of the district. These are situated at a high altitude and are not easily scalable, said Swami Ashok who distributed the material among the villagers. In the affected villages, about 35 houses were almost razed to the ground and many others were damaged. A group of Art of Living volunteers from Delhi provided the relief material.

The help we received from Art of Living is unforgettable and ‘shukriya’ (thank you) is a small word, said Rahamat Ali who received blankets and tents. Sarvana Devi and Mukund Lal lost everything in the calamity and were now left with nothing. “Nobody can bring our loved ones back and we have to live without them. These things will help us to survive as we didn’t get much help from the government.”
