We are working with the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA), Caritas and through our local partner Indo-Global Social Service Society, (IGSSS) implementing activities among the most marginalised and vulnerable villages.
To respond to the immediate needs of the flood affected communities in Alapuzha and Idduki districts in this part of India.
Christian Aid has an ongoing programme in Kerala mainly focusing around WASH, shelter and non-food Items in the areas most affected by floods and landslides. Christian Aid is implementing programmes through local partners who have a strong presence on the ground. Our team is closely monitoring the programme to ensure it meets quality, accountability, safeguarding and code of conduct standards.
Through this project, beneficiaries have received non-food Items and safe drinking water in the affected communities living in remote villages. They are also being educated on promoting practices to reduce the risk of water-borne diseases, so the programme also includes cleaning-out wells, rain-water harvesting tanks and the de-sludging of septic tanks.
