Due to the recent heavy rainfall, water from the Narmada River overflowed into many villages in the Bharuch and Ankleshwar districts. Water levels reached up to 10 feet in many homes and even flooded animal shelters. This led to the disruption of both human and animal life. Swamis and volunteers from the BAPS Mandir in Bharuch immediately assisted those affected. They distributed more than 20,000 food packets and provided hot meals of puri, sabji, khichdi, dal, rice, and more to over 10,000 people.
Around 1,000 affected families were also provided clothing and ration kits comprising around 18 kg of grains and other cooking essentials. Additionally, many affected livestock were provided with dry and green fodder. The swamis and volunteers put in extraordinary efforts to reach the affected, whether by boat or on foot, through waist-deep water and tricky muddy areas.
