Land Rover And Oxfam Provided Relief To Flood Affected Assam

The floods had submerged 86 villages in Karimgunj district in August-September 2017.

 

Land Rover in conjunction with Oxfam India provided relief to the flood affected areas of Karimgunj in Assam during the months of August and September 2017. Land Rover Discovery Sport vehicles were deployed to transport relief and support materials to the affected areas that saw tremendous damage to lives and livelihood.

 

The floods submerged 86 villages in five districts leaving people without access to basic amenities. Land Rover and Oxfam India provided support to over 2,000 people via 381 shelter and hygiene kits. Various programmes to promote safe hygiene practices and messages to ensure access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene, and improved protection to flood affected people, especially women were also conducted.

 

Speaking about the cause, Rohit Suri, President & Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd. (JLRIL) said: “The Assam floods led to tremendous loss of life and property. Our work with Oxfam India helped provide immediate and critical relief to the affected parts. We hope that our contribution helped those in distress to some extent to tide over the crisis.” 

 

Oxfam India’s Director Public Engagement Rina Soni, said, “Lakhs of people in Assam witnessed large scale destruction due to one of the worst floods in the history of the state. A small support in times of crisis can help in bringing back hope to the affected families. It was heartening to see Land Rover contribute and support our efforts in providing relief to the people of Assam.”
