The National Society for Clean Cities-India is a charitable organisation founded in 1972 by Begum Zehra Ali Yuvar Jung, wife of the Former of Governor of Maharashtra Nawab Ali Yuvar Jung. In 1976, the Society established a Children's Complex at Bandra where over 40 different programmes- educational,nutritional, health related, skill oriented and recreational- are all undertaken for the over all development of underprivileged children and women living in 34 slums around the area.

On 26th July 2005, due to the heavy down pour and the subsequent flooding, the entire children's complex was under 10 feet of water for two full days. The floods have damaged and destroyed almost everything including the furniture, fixtures, infrastructural facilities, electrical installations, electronic and other equipment. In addition, 3 months stock of provisions stored for mid-day meals, medicines and health care facilities and materials for skill oriented programmes including computers were all destroyed. All these facilities were built over a period of time with the munificence of several large hearted persons and institutions and it will take the Society a very long time to rebuild and restart the activities meant for the underprivileged children and women.

The Institution seeks the help and support of philanthropically inclined individuals and organisations to come forward and help so that the infrastructural facilities can be rebuilt and the Society could restart its programmes for the poor who themselves have been victims of the nature's havoc recently.

The National Society is registered under the Societies Registration Act and the Bombay Public Trusts Act. All donations are exempt from Incime Tax under Section 80 (g).

I request you to kindly extend all possible help in cash and kind to the Society. For details please contact:

Kurla falls in the L ward, which extends from Chunabhatti to Powai. What compounds Kurla's plight is that it is low-lying and the Mithi river passes through it.  Kurla  plagued by mounds of garbage at every street corner, Kurla seems to be teetering on the brink of an epidemic. Already, workers at the 12 civic health posts here have their hands full treating patients with fever and vomiting— the first symptoms of viral and bacterial infections spread through water. Barely 20 kilometres from the BMC headquarters, in the putrid bylanes of Kurla, women have been washing clothes and utensils in sewage. No wonder then that the last few days have seen a surge in cases of water-borne diseases.

We found garbage heaps—even rotting foodgrains dumped by wholesellers after the floods—on the arterial roads, including the Andheri-Kurla road, the 90-feet road and S G Barve Marg even after nearly a month. Most of the health posts are unmanned because doctors have been diverted to a greater need, the landslide site in Saki Naka. The health post near the railway station has a lone health worker. The vaccines stored have lost their potency, as there has been erratic power supply in the area.

 

Also the residents are complaining about food and medical supplies being given to selected group of people. The garbage is not being lifted in the area. Also the necessary fumigation has not been done to stop the outbreak of epidemic.

 

BMC has refused to give notebooks to students studying in private schools they would be just giving the books to students of BMC schools.

 

Majority of the residents of slums are not aware about the help BMC is giving and about TATA group which is coordinating the relief effort.

SAHER (Society for Awareness, Harmony and Equal Rights) is working in Jogeshwari (east) since last 8 years. We work on issues like illiteracy, drug abuse, civic issues and issues related to women. 
Jogeshwari (east) is a densely populated area including slums and buildings. Meghwadi, Majaswadi, Caves road, Maharaj Bhuvan, Ambika Nagar and Chacha
Nagar are densely populated slum areas and are worst affected areas during this flood, as these are low lying areas. 
Around 500 families are affected. Majaswadi alone has witnessed 11 casualties. All these areas have suffered grave losses both in terms of human lives and livelihood. Children have been worst affected since their books and school uniforms has been washed away in the rains. We fear the dire consequences of these children dropping out of schools owing to such losses.
Immediate relief needs of the population:
. Food
. Medical Assistance
. Educational Resources
. Shelter in some areas
Medical Camps have been set up in some areas, but acute shortage of food persists. We need support and assistance in terms of financial and material resources to procure food substance for the affected people at the earliest. And also provision of books, notebooks and school uniforms for the children
to be able to continue going to schools. 
We would also like to draw your attention to Hanuman Nagar situated in Kandivili (east). This area has been very badly affected and requires immediate relief in terms of food, medical assistance and shelter. 
Our contact numbers are:
Sheikh Masood Akhtar (President SAHER)- 9323202572

We would like to source old clothes for children (ages 2-20) that VOICE reaches out to through our 4 centres and 3 street schools, especially for those affected by the recent floods. Could you let me know more on this or who we can contact. Thks.

One Lakh Note Book Campaign

 

The recent floods in Western Maharashtra have created havoc in many villages in Kolhapur, Sangli, Solapur, Satara and Pune.  Though Mumbai City, Konkan areas received a lot of attention many of the villages in above districts have been neglected of relief and solidarity to the affected people. Water was stagnant in these villages minimum 5 to 8 days. This has resulted in damage of crops, their mud houses, kitchen vessels and provisions. One of the most affected are the school children who lost their textbooks and notebooks.  

 

Most of the schools in affected area will be functioning from 22nd August 2005. Though the government has agreed to provide text books (which may take some time) there is no commitment to provide notebooks and other materials such as pencils, school bags etc to these children. Some schools have lost all collection of library books, furnitures, uniforms of NCC etc. The immediate response of CYDA is to put school children as a priority and see that their education is not affected in any way.

 

CYDA has decided to mobilize 1 lakhs notebooks to be distributed among the children in these affected schools. We request you to supply with notebooks or make a commitment to provide notebooks to these children. Please drop the notebooks before 25th August 2005 at CYDA, Flat No.4, Vasanttara, Near Hotel Surya, Off Ghole Rd, Deccan Ghymkhana, Pune 411004.  Or call us at Tele: 020-25533168/167 we will pick up the note books if they are in larger quantity. (Donations to CYDA are exempted as per 80G of IT Act).

 

  Other Materials immediately required are:

 

  1. Pencils, pens and school bags,
  2. Kitchen Vessels for cooking including stove
  3. Grains & Pulses, Sugar, Masala
  4. Tarpaulin sheets
  5. Temporary shelters
  6. Shelter repairing items such as cement, bricks, sand etc
  7. Volunteer Expenses
  8. Veterinary Medicine for animals
  9. Fodder for animals 

Because of agencies such as CII (Pune and Mumbai), Forbes Marshall, Kirloskar Oil Engines, Business and Community Foundation, Sanvedana Trust, Tata Motors and other individuals and institutes we could distribute following items like medicine, stove, grains, clothes, volunteer expenses to 1000s of families. We also acknowledge the efforts taken by Radio Mirchi to mobilize resource for the same.

Damu Nagar in Kandivali East is the second largest slum after Dharavi in Mumbai.
A delegation of about 20 women visited me on 15th August. They have still NOT received 10 kg rice, 10 kg. wheat, and 10 litre of kerosene that the Govt. promised them, so far. And lot of "golmal" in the dole distribution. Many have still not received any monetary compensation.  The Govt. officers roaming with police and so-called local leaders distribute money to their selective people and not to those affected. They also reported of water shortage. One old woman reported that she had lost her son in electrocution, but has not received any assistance so far. She had come with two grand children. I have asked her to bring the death certificate so that the needful can be done.

generating skills are taught. It also houses the production units. WIT has created a sound platform to provide training and employment opportunities
for the young girls and women in need. Various employment opportunities are also offered at the two Mumbai centres and at Panvel.

Recent floods that affected Mumbai and parts of Maharashtra also affected the WIT production centre, submerging most of WIT's Day care centre, Nursery , Canteen, Hostel, Food processing centre and their retail shop in Panvel.

Notwithstanding the losses accrued to WIT, they are now working in the affected areas of Panvel. WIT has requested for aid that can be distributed
to families affected by the deluge.

--Rekha Ajay Kadam Requirements for entire rehabilitation for the locality Rekha Sadan-A Room no.12 Bhandup(E) c/o25786468 
--TISS through its students and allliances with organizations in the field has been involved in relief work from Thursday, July 28, 2005. The relief work conducted in Mandala, Rafique Nagar, Rahul Nagaar, Anna Bhau Saathe Nagar and Indira Nagar included: 

Need Assessment.
Construction of temoerory shelters in the affected areas. Medical camps in the communities with free supplies of medicines. 
Councelling services. 
Documentation of losses and the kind and amount of supplies needed. Updates on prevailing situation in these communities to various agencies.
There has been a severe loss of life and property in the geographic proximity of the institute and hence TISS has decided to undertake immediate relief work in the M ward

Areas of Intervention
Location Area Number of Affected Families 
Suman Nagar Chembur 800 families
Bhim Chaya Nagar Govandi 300 families
Netaji Nagar Ghatkopar over 1000 families
Maharashtra Nagar Mankhurd over 1000 families
Jai Ambe Nagar Mankhurd 500 families
Padma Nagar Mankhurd 800 families
Mandala Mankhrud 1340 families

Major Issues / Immediate Needs:
Water Logging: There is a need to shift people whose houses are still water logged to safer sites. 
Shelters: Most of the slum dwellers lived in temporary or semi-permanent shelters that have been washed away or rendered unlivable. It is vital to provide people with temporary shelters to recoup as well as protect themselves from monsoon.
Food (Dry Rations): Most people lost their rations and utensils/stoves in the floods along with financial losses. There is an urgent need of dry rations,
fuel and cooking utensils 
Health Concerns: The presence of large quantities of water as well as washing up of large quantities of sewage and animal carcasses in many places poses a serious epidemic hazard. Besides there is a high prevalence of flood related morbidity like cuts and bruises sustained to floating debris, fever and other infections.
There is dire need for both preventive as well as curative interventions. Vulnerable groups like small children, the aged, the disabled, lactating and
pregnant mothers need special care and attention. 
Loss of livelihoods: Thousands of people depended on plying small trades an home based work and the floods have damaged or washed away their tools and trade. 
Loss of lives: In many cases families have suffered deaths and even lost their sole earning members. The psycho-social and economic impacts of these losses need to be addressed.
Nature of Intervention - Strategy 
A team of students had been on a pliot study of the affected areas on 1st August 2005 and based on the findings, following are immediate requirements. 

Medicines
Plastic sheets / linen
Cooked food
Clothes
Safe drinking water
Medium sized containers with lid to store medicines / food.
TISS has sent teams of doctors and social workder to the above mentioned communities. The teams will set up health camps in these communities where the doctors shall conduct basic medical checkup and provide the medicines. The social workers will provide counseling as well as distribuition of relief material. TISS has collaborated with the local community workers to conduct the relief work, who will carry out the work ahead

Mumbai flood

Report and Relief Plan by Manuski Centre

 

Background:

 

Due to deluge which lasted for 21 hours, Mumbai flooded with water. This was due bad drainage system and record breaking rainfall. Many people lost their lives and property. Official estimates of deads are far less than what the unofficial data is indicating which amounts to nearly 2000 people dead. The government machinery is still failing to respond to the situation even after 4days. This is the first hand report submitted by Haresh of Manuski Centre, who was in Mumbai during this whole turmoil.

 

He visited four hugely affected areas in Mumbai; Kurla, Chembur, Ghatkopar, Govandi and Mulund. The government health system has failed to respond and local government is not assuring potable water. Though there is water everywhere, people are not able to find potable water. Most of the people in slums in above mentioned areas have lost almost all of their belongings including their houses. Many people drowned in the flood and some people died in stampede after rumours of Tsunami and cyclone. According to primary survey, nearly 300 families lost all their belongings including their houses and more than 2000 families lost their belongings.

 

In Sakinaka area, the landslide took many lives and majority people who died are slum dwellers and mostly Dalits. In Sakinaka, nearly four thousand people are affected. That makes our target population to be around 12000 roughly.  

 

Manuski wants to respond to the situation on an urgent basis. After survey, it was found that following items are the most needed for the people affected:

 

  1. Chlorinated drinking water (tablets)
  2. Mats
  3. Mattresses
  4. Blankets
  5. Clothes
  6. Food grains
  7. Utensils
  8. Books/notebooks

On an urgent basis, Manuski centre proposes to start relief work in four areas; Kurla, Chembur, Govandi and Mulund. We are proposing to distribute following items to 300 families which lost all of their belongings including their houses.

Citizen , which works in the field of Thalassaemia and Blood, is head quartered in Kalina ( one of the worst affected areas of the flood). We have been running relief operations for the past three days from St Mary's School and Junior College in Kalina. We have managed to distribute medicines, food, disinfectants and organised to clean up the place to whatever extent we can. The Red Cross is in the process of moving relief to us for distribution. But we will need more.

here's an idea. Why don't we ask people to buy/donate cheap portable radios and coordinate with the BMC to get them distributed. It's likely that we'd like to help kids through providing educational materials too so people can contact us with requirements. Also if collection centres are needed, we can try to organise a few spaces. you can start with my house which is at worli.

This is an urgent call of help on behalf of Kalamboli, Navi Mumbai township people. The people in this node of CIDCO have been very badly affected. There is dirty water supply, no electricity, no food for the children,  women, adults, and old people for the past 6 days. The whole township is filthy with ill maintained so called roads blocked further with destroyed clothes , food, grains , papers, furnitures littered on the roads. The lower income group of these residents are anxious with rumours and are a bewildered lot as you talk to them about how are they going to come out of this devastation. The acute food shortage is likely to break them down very soon , especially when they will starvation related problems of their kids. Please do help. Rice, Dal, suger, milk, bread, if provided will help them come out of their tragedy to some extent. Medical help in the form of essential drugs are also needed. Most have loose motions, fever, body ache, skin rashes, cough etc. They can't pay the private practitioners. Please do help. The SIES college of Management had sent their team lead by Gauri Joshi who distributed food packets, Candles, match boxes, biscuits to about 150 affected families in the sector 3 of Kalamboli. But it has to be an ongoing process and all the rest of Kalamboli needs such help. So I earnestly request anybody who can come forward and join hands with me as a volunteer for the purpose and oblige. Dr. Divya Mithel, d_mithel@yahoo.com (July 31, 2005)

By now, we all are aware of the situation in Mumbai, which has been caused by the rain havoc broken by nature on July 26, 2005. Rains completely disrupted the life of the people as they coincided with the high tide in the sea. 

Hundreds of people have died; several others have been rendered homeless. The aftermath has not sopped as we still hear the false rumors which people are falling prey too. There is urgent need that we should act now.

We have launched an appeal to help raise emergency medical supplies, clothing and to provide basic necessities to the people affected by the nature fury.

This appeal will also help support rehabilitation work in the weeks and months to come for those whose everything has been destroyed specially in the areas of Kurla, Saki Naka, Anna Bhau Sathe Nagar, New Mandala Mankhurd, Kannawar Nagar, Ambujwadi, Jogeshwari and others. 

You can help in rebuilding lives – 

Make generous donations (Cheque/cash/Demand Draft) in the name of “Socio Legal Information Centre”. 
Send us medicines, blankets, clothes, anything, which can be useful. 
Volunteering – We will need volunteers in relief and rehabilitation work 
Medical Advice – urgent appeals to all the Doctors – Please contact us for volunteering to provide free medical advice.

All the slums we are working with have remained partially affected. Mainly leakages causing the problems. Nothing major that requires external intervention. Better for them to rally around their own resources.

Have been trying to focus on areas like Kurla onwards on central and Andheri onwards on Western lines. Different areas have had different levels of devastation.

Required items:
1. Educational material - SSC texbooks and notebooks, stationery (usually is at the bottom of the priority list)
2. Bedsheets and Blankets. No other clothing items please
3. Candles, matchboxes and mosquito coils
4. Small utensils-katoris, tumblers, spoons, etc
5. Chappals
6. Plastic Sheets/Plastic Bags
7. Dry rations - 1pack of which has 1 kg rice, 1 kg wheat flour, 200 gms milks powder, sugar, salt, some masala, tea powder for a family. Simple to distribute.

The list of medicines are as below:
1. Paracetamols
2. Cough Syrups
3. Basic antibiotics
4. Skin ointments
5. Anti-diarreahals
6. Ear Drops
7. Chlorine tabs-water purification tabs

Called up people I know and here is a list of people who are involved in Rahat kaam. Phone lines are still a major issue.
Huge issue will be collection of material and I am not sure who has the capability to set up like during the Tsunami time.
You can circulate this to the list and interested people can directly contact the Field agencies.

At this time, Akanksha can send out mailers to our databases for material, but not do any more than that.

Thanks and regards,
Sriram
