Himalayan Institute Hospital Trust helping Flood victims

More than 15,000 people have died in the Uttarakhand floods resulting from a cloudburst on Sunday, June 16, 2013. Thousands of decaying bodies are spread across the valley. There are concerns of an epidemic outbreak. People living in the mountains have started complaining of fever, diarrhea and vomiting.

Many villages are washed away and villagers are spending the nights in the tents. Himalayan Institute Hospital Trust (HIHT) will be concentrating its efforts on them. The Institute has decided to adopt 50 affected villages. We will work for health, sanitation and education related issues in these 50 villages. We do not want to focus on rehabilitation issues because many funds are coming into the State for rehabilitation and reconstruction of villages.

HIHT is thankful to the many concerned and generous people who have responded to our plea. For more information contact
