Rehabilitate flood victims
The recent floods have rendered thousands of people homeless, lying in camps in a miserable condition, with no means of livelihood. The dirty water they are forced to consume is also causing skin diseases and other severe illness. We need to fight this natural calamity together and help these victims. We need more barrages and canals in our river systems. The authorities should immediately provide food, clothing and medicines for the affected people. Students, social workers and generous citizens can also contribute to the relief projects.
Every one of us can send at least a day's salary for this cause. While it is the responsibility of the Health Ministry to rehabilitate the victims, I urge the readers of this newspaper to forget caste, religion, and political affiliations, and come forward to help them together.
