Urgent appeal for millions affected by
Floods in Andhra Pradesh & Karnataka, India


As of Monday, 5 Oct 2009, more than 200 people are reported dead and an estimated 2 million displaced from their homes due to incessant rains and floods in Krishna and Tungabhadra rivers in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka that started in southern India from Thursday, Oct 1.

According to the Press Trust of India (PTI), 400 villages in five districts in the state of Andhra Pradesh have been hit by the worst floods in 100 years. In Karnataka, heavy loss of life and destruction to property was in the northern districts of Bijapur, Bagalkot, Raichur and Bellary. Both in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, over 300,000 houses were damaged due to floods.

Those displaced are suffering acutely due to lack of food and clean water. This is an hour we all must come together and show our wholehearted support for the flood survivors. It is critical that the immediate needs such as food, clean water and medicine are provided to those affected.
