Flood Relief

Tuesday, 26th July, 2005. The first warning of the devastation that was to follow, came at about 4.00 p.m. p.m. a decision was taken to send the girls, teachers and other staff home. Located in Bharat Nagar, behind the Government Servant’s Colony, off the Bandra Kurla Complex in Bandra East in North Mumbai. Shaheen Urdu High School is a recognized school for girls with over 450 girls in standards 8th, 9th and 10th. (The undersigned is Treasurer and co-founder of the school established in June 1992). Shaheen Urdu High School is also the distribution point and working centre of Rahat Welfare Trust, a known and registered NGO and Trust, which helps thousands of students either partially, or totally through its Total Educational Support Scheme (TESS), under which a student once selected receives almost every thing to go to school on a continuing basis. Majority of the students so sponsored are orphans (having lost their fathers) and also children of divorcees and deserted women. Rahat has over 2500 applications on record from hundreds of widows, divorcees, destitute and deserted women, all of whom want to educate their children. (For details of Rahat’s ongoing work please visit ).

Fifteen days after the deluge on 8th August 2005 the situation in Bharat Nagar and other affected areas is still very bleak. On that fateful Tuesday afternoon, in a matter of hours, the Mithi River overflowed its banks and inundated nearly all of the 5000-6000 ground floor houses-huts of this slum locality. Everyone lost almost everything: clothes, mattresses, books, cupboards and furniture, household items. There was no way to save anything, such was the ferocity of the garbage-filled, slime-infested, filthy water.

In this time of great distress when over 1000 people have lost their lives and lakhs have suffered great losses and are distressed and traumatized, Rahat Welfare Trust would like to add its modest efforts to help ease a little bit of suffering. And it would start with the Rahat beneficiaries from all over the City, for students of Shaheen Urdu High School and for the residents of Bharat Nagar from where we work. And also all other people affected by the floods in any way we can. Funds are urgently needed for food-grains, medicines, school books, uniforms, clothes and other household items.
