Emergency Relief

Odisha is plagued by continuous natural disasters such as cyclones and flooding. Inadequate drainage for water and sanitation leads to lost homes and various medical emergencies. In addition to frequent natural disasters inadequate medical facilities in the villages and a lack of education about healthcare leads to various emergency medical needs. Grassroots India routinely provides training, logistics, and aid to those suffering in times of emergency. In 2018 our responsiveness to emergency care was enhanced through a joint initiative with Swiss Heidi Foundation who donated the use of their ambulance.
