Save Draught Victims
About 330 million people are suffering under the drought in India, the government has said, and weeks of sweltering temperatures have caused more than 160 deaths in parts of the country.
Officials said most of the heatwave victims were labourers and farmers in the states of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Orissa, though temperatures elsewhere in India have also hit 45°C.
As summer hits India, reports of families and farmers in remote villages walking long distances to find water after their wells dried up have dominated local media.
Hundreds of mainly poor people die at the height of summer annually in India, but temperatures have risen earlier than normal, increasing concerns about this year’s overall toll.
Come lets join our hands together to help the families to build a better living for themselves after such a disaster.
