    Donate Generously For Flood Relief, Appeals Meghalaya CM

    Guwahati, July 19, 2019

    Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma appealed to all to donate generously for taking up relief measures in flood-hit Garo Hills. Besides causing loss to property and agriculture, the recent floods following the monsoon fury have claimed eight lives.

    Urging all individuals to donate to Chief Minister’s Relief Fund, Sangma mentioned in a Twitter post that Garo Hills has been affected by the worst floods this year which has adversely hit the life and livelihood of people residing in the flood-stricken plains.

    “Every contribution counts, #Meghalaya’s #GaroHills is currently facing flood, which has affected lakhs of population. At this time of crisis, your generous contributions will help rebuild the lives of our people,” the Chief Minister wrote on Twitter.

    He added, “While my Government through the various District Administrations is doing it’s best in providing relief measures, we cannot do this alone. Your donation and support as citizens of the State will not only help us rebuild the community but reach our further in aid of our people.”

    As per information available, over 1.55 lakh persons have been affected by floods in the Brahmaputra and Jingiram rivers. Around 136 villages in the western part of Meghalaya are reeling underwater. A total of 52 relief camps are operational in West Garo Hills district and South West Garo Hills district.

    On the other hand, Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda too expressed his concern about the current situation in Meghalaya as the floods continue to affect lakhs of lives. He urged his fans to come forward and donate to help the flood victims.

    He wrote, “It’s not only #AssamFloods and #BiharFloods the people of the state of #Meghalaya are also very affected in lakhs by incessant rain and #Flooding #GaroHills.”  Thanking Hooda, Sangma replied, “Yes @RandeepHooda it’s affected #Meghalaya badly .. thank you for your concern and support.”
