Assam floods: Hygiene and shelter kits arrive by boat

Oxfam hygiene kits and shelter kits arrive by boat in Morigaon, Assam, India. Each hygiene kit includes:

 

- 1 Oxfam Bucket

- 1 mug

- 1 nail cutter

- 2 combs

- 60 Aqua Tabs

- 5 bathing soaps

- Washing detergent

- 2m sanitary cloth

 

Incessant monsoon rains have caused one of the worst floods in the last 14 years in the state of Assam in India, with 2.4 million people affected. Half a million people have been displaced.

 

Oxfam India is responding with:

 

- Water and sanitation

- Public health

- Emergency food security

- Shelter support

 

Working with UNICEF and local partners, we aim to reach more than 80,000 people in Morigaon, Nagaon, Sonitpur, Jorhat and Golaghat.
