Rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of villagers in the remote Dharchula block, Uttarakhand, India. Thanks to your donations, over 300 people in twenty hamlets have a warm place to sleep! Each packet – sheet, mosquito net, pillow, mattress, and bed-frame – went to a family living in temporary shelters since June’s devastating floods. The villagers, living in almost inaccessible hamlets, reported that this was the first real relief they’ve received, since losing their homes, possessions, and loved ones in June.
SCALE made sure that each family was truly need and even arranged special deliveries for the elderly and disabled. Your gifts have traveled hundreds of miles, from quality-control at the SCALE office, over washed-out roads and Himalayan hills, and were distributed efficiently and honestly by the organization itself. Meet the people who’ve lives you’d changed!
