The recent floods have left thousands of people hungry and vulnerable to diseases like diarrhoea in the absence of adequate relief supplies. Many of the flood-hit people are unable to return home from temporary shelters as their houses were badly damaged. And they are also facing a shortage of drinking water as most of the tube-wells in the area have gone under water.
Inadequate government relief has worsened their crises and compounded their woes. Apart from the government's aid, other affluent individuals and organisations must step forward immediately to stand beside the victims of flood.
