The United States has offered humanitarian aid to the flood-affected people of Jammu and Kashmir.
The US intends to provide USD 250,000 to select nongovernmental organizations through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in response to the needs of the people affected by the disaster.
The organizations, which include Save the Children India, Care India, and Plan India, will use these funds to provide emergency relief, including temporary shelter and non-food relief supplies, to thousands of families in remote villages severely affected by the floods.
Thousands of people are thought to be stranded in Indian-administered Kashmir nearly two weeks after devastating floods there.
At least 200 people have died, with many missing, and there are mounting fears of disease spreading as criticism grows of the Indian government’s response.
