Dear brothers and Sisters,
Assalamu Alaikum

Re: Report on Flood Relief work in Kurnool, Mahabubnagar and Raichur District.

As you are aware that the recent floods =n the above districts caused heavy damage and made many people homeless.

Realizing the immediate support to these flood victims, we have taken up the distribution of food items i.e., breads, biscuits, water packets and other food items in Kurnool and Mahabubnagar districts =rom the very next day of floods for 3 days in the effected villages.

The Flood Victims lost everything and here shifted to Flood Relief Camps. We prepared Flood Relief Family Kits containing new clothes, bed sheets, buckets, =tensils, and also tarpaulins for construction of temporary shelters, each kit costing Rs.1,500/-. We have distributed 3663 Flood Relief Family Kits in 25 villages and 14 areas in Kurnool town and Kurnool district, Mahabubnagar and Raichur districts in Karnataka. A total expenditure of Rs.42 lakhs (US$:90,000) has been incurred for this relief work.

We have also envisaged the survey for re-establishment of businesses of the petty traders and propose to give interest-free loans through Micro-Finance Project. We are planning to cover at =east 200 businesses in these villages with an estimated budget of Rs.50 lakhs (US$: 109,000).

The students in these villages are given note books as they lost their books also in the floods. We propose to give special scholarships to these students and wish to cover maximum number of students, by =educing the eligibility criteria from 65% to 55%. The Budget estimated for the special scholarships is Rs.10 lakh =US$: 22,000).

We convey our sincere thanks to all those who participated in this noble cause and pray Allah (SWT) to reward them suitably for their kind gesture. Few photographs are enclosed.

Sincerely,

Dear brothers and sisters,
Asslamu alaikum.

Re: Flood relief in Kurnool and other districts of Andhra Pradesh.

We invite your kind attention to the media reports regarding the sudden and unprecedented floods that marooned a number of villages in Kurnool, Mahaboobnagar and Krishna districts of Andhra Pradesh. Continuous heavy down pour since last two days worsened the situation and people belonging to Kurnool town are the worst effected, as they are cut off from Hyderabad and other places, and lost the communication also, due to non functioning of mobile phones and failure of electricity. As per the reports, the flood waters entered Kurnool town to a height of more than 15 feet and thousands of people climbed to the tops of building roofs and crying for help and rescue.

Some of the victims are shifted to safer places and the remaining people are being shifted.

The immediate relief required for these victims is supply of food and drinking water since they are starving for the past two days. It is estimated that about 2.5 lakh people are effected in Kurnool town alone and hundreds are missing.

In view of the gravity of the situation, we have immediately geared up our net work of offices and instructed our staff to take up relief operations. Since the road way to Kurnool town from Hyderabad is cut off, we have taken up supply of relief material like breads, biscuits, milk, water packets, banana fruits, and other required items for the victims of Kurnool town, from Anantapur, which is 150 KMs from Kurnool. We have also started supply of food items from our Yemmiganoor office to Mantralayam (distance 15 KMs) and the surrounding villages, which are also submerged in the flood water. We are also planning to get these items from our office at Nandyal town which is about 90 KMs from Kurnool.

The situation in other places is also taking a serious turn because of the flood water now started entering in villages of other districts mentioned above.

Since immediate relief operations save many lives, we appeal you to take part in this noble cause and send your contributions by way of personal cheques favouring “Foundation for Economic and Educational Development ” and mail them to the above address. You may also send your donation online through our website: www.feed-hyd.org by using your credit card.

We request you to pray Allah (SWT) to save the lives of the flood victims, and look forward for your response.

Jazak Allah Khair

Sincerely,
