The people of Maharashtra were only just recovering from the deadly second wave, as they saw some of the highest number of cases in the country. Now, once again, the state has been brought to its knees. With landslides, collapsed buildings and rivers crossing danger levels, Maharashtra is in urgent need of help right now.
More than 50% of the coastal town of Chiplun in Ratnagiri has reportedly been submerged, as heartbreaking videos from the area have come to light. One such video shows a woman being pulled up from the flooded area with a rope, but just as she almost reaches safety, they lose grip and she falls into the water.
Without urgent help, thousands of lives like this will be in danger. So far, countless people are marooned in the state, while 44 people have reportedly died so far due to the floods.
The entire state of Maharashtra is struggling to survive.
While the situation is grim, there is still hope. It is in times like these that we see the true power of empathy and people coming together. NGOs and individuals have already started coming forward to lend a helping hand. Making The Difference who have been working tirelessly to help thousands ever since the pandemic began and now
want to leave no stone unturned to help people during these devastating floods.
However, they can’t do it without your help.
