In response to the recent mudslides and floods that have devastated Ladakh, an Insanyiat team, including my mother, is heading up to Ladakh along with relief supplies later this week. The National Disaster Management Authority will airlift the supplies from Delhi to Leh on Saturday, August 14 and the Insanyiat team will start distribution on Sunday, August 15.As per Insanyiat's mission statement, their team will personally distribute each kit, rather than pass them off to another NGO or civil authorities.
Insanyiat is taking 500 Family Packs. Our composite ' family pack' consists of a sleeping bag, tarpaulin, blanket, 13 piece set of steel utensils, kerosene stove, water purifier, jerrycan, bucket with mug, bath towel, toilet kit, nylon rope etc. In addition we are sending 20 High Altitude tents (12' x 12'). Each kit costs apprx. Rs. 2000 and each tent is Rs. 10,000.Any number of kits or tents you wish to sponsor with be greatly appreciated. Cheques can be made in favour of 'Insanyiat'. Donations in cash are also welcome.
