Flood-hit Indian State Appeals for More Help བོད་སྐད།


Flood hit northern India is in dire need of international aid on the level of that seen after the 2004 Asian tsunami, a state official said Wednesday. A large swathe of the already desperately poor state of Bihar is likely to remain under water for several months, leaving authorities coping with at least a million people who have lost everything, officials and aid worker said. " We will definitely need the support of international organizations and agencies, the same as after the tsunami in 2004 or the Gujarat earthquake" in 2001, said Bihar disasters minister Nitish Mishra. Also the Kashag Secretariat of the Central Tibetan Administration, Dharamsala, has requested the Tibetans living in exile to raise donation for the flood victims of Bihar to show our sympathy and concern.
