Doctors/Volunteers required for Bihar Flood Relief Work

To address the prevailing national calamity in Bihar, shortly a team of Doctors and Volunteers will be heading towards the various flood affected districts of Bihar. “YOUTH FOR EQUALITY” in collaboration with the Mumbai based “DOCTORS FOR YOU” and “INDIAN RAILWAY” preparing the logistic to implement the rescue plan. Considering the prediction of future flow of water in Kosi River particularly from Nepal, the scenario will remain same for few days which needed to be addressed without delay. This requires stationing of volunteers in Bihar for some days. Doctors from various parts of India will be traveling to undertake rescue related work and accompanying volunteers will share the responsibility of management. We require volunteers/doctors at this hour of need to help a large section of humanity in Bihar. Please contact us for participation in this rescue work and to offer any kind of service.

(Hundreds of people have lost their lives since July and nearly 20 million affected as one of the worst floods in Bihar in a decade showed no signs of abating. The situation in the worst affected 17 districts remained grim. An alarming rise in water level due to heavy rains inundated fresh areas in Bhagalpur, Begusarai, Katihar, Samastipur and Khagaria districts. Since Kosi River, the sorrow of Bihar, suddenly changed its course after breaching its embankment in Nepal on August 18, Kosi has moved 120km eastward, inundating huge tracts of low land. The river continues to engulf more and more villages every day. In Madhepura district alone, 378 villages have been badly affected while the corresponding number in Supaul is 243. Other affected districts are Araria, Saharsa, Purnia, Katihar and Khagaria.)
