Emergency Response

Flooding 2009

Severe flooding in India killed more than 300 people and left 250,000 homeless. This was the worst flooding to hit south central India in decades. More than 1.5 million people were forced from their homes and thousands are crowding temporary camps and makeshift emergency shelters.

Among other things, Americares India Foundation’s medical aid includes antibiotics and other lifesaving medicines to treat injuries and address disease outbreaks.
