Humanitarian Appeal for Flood Victims of Jammu & Kashmir State

Islamic Relief and Research Trust (IRRT), Kashmir is an initiative for just and compassionate society and is a social/charitable enterprise for equitable and sustainable change. IRRT was established in the year 2000 under the law of the land. It is a non profit, non political, nongovernmental philanthropic organization based in Srinagar, Kashmir, India. It provides humanitarian assistance to poor, needy, destitute, orphans, widows, and in general to victims of conflict and natural calamities regardless of caste, creed, religion, region and gender.

IRRT is registered under law of the state and is also registered with Home Ministry of India under FCRA no. 152640002 and is also registered with Income Tax department under 12 A of I.T Act. 

Since last more than two decades the state of J&K is witnessing a devastating violent conflict that has brutalized the inhabitants of the State resulting in thousands of killings rendering numerous children as orphans and spouses as widows.

To add insult to injury natural calamities and disasters time and again create havoc adding to the miseries of the unfortunate masses. The September, 2014 flood has affected more than 60% of the population of J&K state i.e. six million people, particularly of the Kashmir Valley.

The devastating flood waters have left most of the people without shelter, medicine and food. At present we are passing through the rescue phase of the disaster management that is simultaneously complimented by relief phase. After these two phases we need to go for the rehabilitation phase that is the long drawn and permanent one. At present we are in dire need of the following items in terms of immediate relief for the victims.

Food Items
 
1. Rice
2. Wheat (AATA)
3. Dry Milk (Nestle or Everyday)
4. Baby Milk (Lactogen or Cerelac)
5. Biscuits
6. Sugar
7. Spices
8. Tea
9. Cereals
10. Pulses
11. Cooking Oil
12. Chlorine tablets for drinking water
13. Mineral Water Bottles
14. Fresh Dates
 
Other Items

2. Sanitary pads for girls and women

2. Thyronorm (25 and 50 mcg)

Presently in coordination with other activists and volunteers the IRRT has established several base camps for the rescued flood victims wherein food and medical facilities are provided by utilizing our own resources. But our resources are meager and will run out soon due to the severity and magnitude of the relief operations.
 
So on Humanitarian grounds we appeal to all donor agencies/grant giving institutions and other generous individuals to come forward with possible relief in kind and financial assistance in cash for permanent rehabilitation of more than six million people.
 
We are maintaining our Bank accounts with J&K Bank Ltd. With its branch office at Chadoora India.
