World Vision India to aid 2500 quake-hit families in Sikkim
People need us there! An earthquake measuring 6.8 on the Richter scale jolted east, north and northeast of India on Sept 18,
2011, incurring heavy loss of lives and property.
Within a day of the earthquake, World Vision India swung into action with its relief
efforts in Kalimpong. The team made their way to the epicentre enduring heavy
rains, landslides and routes that were inaccessible by roads or motorised vehicles. We are one of the first NGO's there.
As the last of the quake-hit Himalayan communities are being reached by soldiers, World Vision India is focusing its relief efforts in and around the
epicentre in Mangan, some parts of South Sikkim and Kalimpong in West Bengal.
World Vision has provided relief to 100 families yesterday. We are
looking forward to extend support to 2500 families and meet the needs of the most affected concentrating in the Dzongu area of Sikkim.
of lives and essentials due to collapse and damage of houses and streets, people are still faced with the fear and anxieties of future. Your support will
definitely work wonders in their lives.
