Ubuntu Trust, a Hyderabad based NGO (Non government organisation), has distributed relief material for those affected by recent floods to River Godavari in Bhadradri Kothagudem district. A team of Ubuntu went to Gandedu, Sunnambatti and Dummugudem 2 BHK areas of Dummugudem mandal near Bhadrachalam on August 30, Tuesday and handed over the material like utensils and blankets to the needy.

T Chiranjeevulu, IAS (Retd) Ubuntu Trust founder chairman who led the team told Excel India that the floods situation is fast improving now but still the affected people have some problems. “They should be provided with better houses away from the banks of the river. They built their present houses along the river banks prone to submergence as their farm lands are near by,” said Chiranjeevulu.

The trust has collected relief material from some organisations including M/s Narayana Traders, Hyderabad, Mahendra Lifestyle, Hanamkonda and Ms Gilda Tiles Gallery, Hyderabad. Around 300 families were given the material. Mahendra Kapoor, a businessman from Warangal too was with Chiranjeevulu in this drive.  Chiranjeevulu after his superannuation from service in 2021 formed Ubuntu Trust. 

Though the flood affected people have returned to normalcy, they should be provided with better healthcare as now these villages are likely to be caught by contagious and seasonal diseases. “We should rush in medical assistance, both in terms of medicines and medical teams so that the people there are not suffered,” said Chiranjeevulu, who earlier worked as as a district administrator in various capacities including the district collector and director HMDA.

Several other organisations and individuals too are engaged in providing relief for the Bhadrachalam flood affected people. Godavari River witnessed massive floods after 1986 thanks to the heavy rains from June to August second week this year. Many organisations are collecting and distributing rice, other eatables and clothes for the flood hit, but what they now need most is other household items and medical supplies.
