Pankhudi Sahayata Leh Campaign
The recent cloudburst in Leh has created havoc on the lives of all those affected. Hundreds of lives have been lost, houses have been destroyed and people have lost everything they have. According to Mr. Anshu Gupta (Founder, Goonj) who has actually visited the site, the extent of damage is immense. “In a population of around 20K, 200 recovered dead bodies, 500 missing people, hundreds of houses totally crumbled, heavy loss to crop, cattle and property is not a small loss. Many families have been wiped out completely; even the dead bodies are still under the 6- 7 ft. of mud, which suddenly entered their homes as they were sleeping. The prime concern is the upcoming winter. In winters the temperature of Leh goes down to -20 degree centigrade and this time due to lack of homes it’s going to be quite a miserable time. There is also a bigger question of food security as the affected people have lost the stocks they created to use in the 6 months of harsh winters.”
To offer whatever assistance we can in their time of need, Pankhudi Foundation is doing a collection drive for the victims of the floods. We are collecting money and other items that will be needed by the victims to now and in the coming months to re-build their lives.
* Good quality woollens and blankets (Important)
* Tarpaulins and thick plastic sheets
* Export surplus or Cotton cloth for making sanitary napkins
* Cooking and water storage utensils or buckets
* School material- toys & games, stationary, notebooks etc.
* Lanterns, candles, matchbox, torch & batteries
Material donations must be packed in plastic gunny bags to make storage and transport easier. All donations will be sent to Goonj for further distribution on the ground. The Goonj team recently visited Leh to do a basic assessment of the situation and have connected with local organizations to help the Leh victims.
* Donations must be in the form of CHEQUES / DRAFTS ONLY in the name of “GOONJ”. We cannot accept cash.
* Tarpaulins and thick plastic sheets
* All your donations are eligible for Tax Exemption under 80G. For receipts, please write the following information behind your cheques/drafts – Name, Address, Phone No. and PAN No.
Taking material to Leh is costly and difficult therefore GOONJ will be using the money we raise to buy materials from cities near Leh
For donations please provide your details HERE. The last date for sending in your contributions is 10th September 2010.

On Behalf of Ladakh Students Union Delhi and Help Ladakh Campaign:
Its been three weeks since the flash flood struck in Ladakh. Over the last three weeks many Ladakhis outside from their homeland (US, Europe, Delhi, Chandigarh, Jammu etc) were actively as well as silently involved in relief campaigns. Moreover the Ladakhi students and youths who are studying/working outside Ladakh (Delhi, Jammu and Chandigarh) are actively involved in collecting donations in cash and kind and organizing campaigns. One such campaign was organized by Ladakh Student Union Delhi and they managed to collect Rs 5 Lakh and expected to touch approximately Rs 6 Lakh by 6th of September. On behalf of Ladakh students Union Delhi and Help Ladakh Campaign we would like to thank few of the contributors whose help, advices and significant assistance were very valuable during such a harsh time: Few names that I would like to take are Art of Living Delhi, Major Vinod Kumar, Ka Rigzin Samphel, Rahul IAS institute and Rishi.
On 29th of August (Sunday), Ladakh Student Association Delhi and Help Ladakh Campaign decided to donate an ICU ventilator to SNM hospital, Leh with the collected donation. The details and costs of the machine will put on the board shortly.
We have already stopped collecting materials @ Ladakh Buddha Vihara-Bela Road because all the volunteers are students and also we will stop collecting after 6th of Sept. It was decided initially that the campaign would be carried out for one month. However we are silently continuing with the relief campaign by selling T-Shirt @ concerts, Cultural meets, shows, etc. T-Shirts will be available from tomorrow (i.e., 1st of Sept-@ Rs 250/ T-shirt). I was unable to update the designs selected for the T0shirts. Unfortunately we are left with only 200 nos of T-shirts. I would like to thank all the designers, particularly Prateek Sethi, Prakash Thapa and Tsetang Angmo for their conceptual designs. Contact Gyatso and Dawa for Tees.

Initiative of Isha Tours and Sahyamitra, Mumbai
As all you know there has been a major calamity in Ladakh, the most memorable part of the world, a place which has been engraved on every individual’s heart who has been there.
This heavenly region has been devastated by heavy flash floods and mud slides. Many people have lost their lives and those surviving have lost their everything. And in a region where to grow a small plant takes lot of hardship, they have lost all their stock food and even the shelter of their homes! And the on-coming winter (with temperatures plummeting down to -20, -30deg Celsius!! ) makes matters even worse.
In a region which shows no mercy to the weak, where the rule of ‘Survival of the Fittest’ applies the best, day to day survival is becoming a major challenge for these warm-hearted locals, let alone the mental agony they are facing.
Battling this are some of our near and dear friends who at present are in very awful condition, but still taking out m ud and bodies from house from and of their close friends! Padma’s (some of you know him well) village, Saboo was the epicenter of the mudslide and were right in its way before it reached Choglumsar! ( Padma and his brother sounded an alarm when they, Luckily, saw the slide coming and saved many lives in the village)
We, Isha Tours and Sahyamitra, have started working to help these unfortunate friends and their villages. We would like to request those of you who wish to or have already show willingness to help, to provide monetary help for them. Some of you have offered to provide clothing and other necessities, but we advice otherwise as carrying them to Leh would prove difficult and they are or will be offered these by other groups. Whereas they are in need of money to be able to rebuild their house, buy groceries, utensils and other essentials as well as set up their farms and business (mainly tourist) now and later!
Hence those who want to kindly send your contribution to any of these volunteers:
Smita Rege : 09320031910
Vidya Parab: 09320231910
Geeta Mane: 09619199321

One group and most probably Atmaram is also expected to leave for Ladakh next week.

Since then, ten years and a multitude of adventures later Ladakh has become an integral part of getoffurass and in a lot of ways has helped us define what we are today. The land and the people has ha…d a huge impact on the way we see and feel things. It has touched our lives and changed us for the better. The friends we made here are the ones we would cherish for life.
To watch a calamity like this befall this land and its simple, beautiful, loving people has affected us a great deal. We have put together this event for raising awareness and doing what we can to help. With you, with us at this event we hope to reach out to as many people as we can.

One thing about donating etc. is that the relief material should reach the people who are in need. The parts of Leh city which has been damaged is mainly the area of Skampari and the bus stand and Skalzaling and the Solar Colony at Choglamsar. The residents of these places are mainly from the middle and lower income group. They have left the villages and settled in Leh or have left rented houses and have made their own houses there. most of the construction has been haphazard as there have been no building norms. My main concern is that we have a plan for building shelters/ one room houses before the winter sets in. Water starts to freeze by the middle of October and no construction can be done.
What we should plan is to help with the basic requirements like kitchen utensils, wood stoves (bukharis), firewood for winter heating and clothing for the harsh sub-zero winters. Winters are long from End of October to the end of April. May is also quite cold. Immediate help can be given but if we do some thing we should have it done with keeping that the people who have lost their homes are to face a very harsh and cold winter. This is because to construct homes for all in this season will be an uphill task but they can have prefab housing or make one room structures for the families. This we alone cannot do we can have people at Leh . I am just giving my opinion. Rigzin can call his IAS friends etc to help as they may have some other ideas. In the end of this we have two tasks ahead of us the interim relief and the long term relief for the winter.

HELPING STUDENTS IN LEH
A group of Ladakhi students, who belong to Kelibuk, Narchumg and Choglamsar villages of Thiksay area of Ladakh, said it had now become difficult for them to continue their studies and to meet their daily requirements in faraway regions, as they have to pay for their rents also.
They said the flash floods in Ladakh might have destroyed agricultural lands and live stocks, which were the only source of income for their families. Many students who were due to receive money from parents could not get it due to the snapping of all means of communication between Leh and Jammu.
Stanzin Amgmo, a student of Class XI, said, “I was due to receive money in the first week of this month but the flash floods have destroyed our property. Now my parents will not be able to send me money.”
Under such circumstances, these students have demanded financial help from the government till the time they are able to get support from their parents.
They also demanded restoration of ATM services in Leh.
here are sad cases coming in of Ladakhi students in various parts of the country who have suffered loss of loved ones and property.To assist them we are co-ordinating with the students union of Jammu , Chandigrah and Delhi to get the account numbers of their respective Treasurers. Keep checking

India Trust (LWSIT)
The most urgent needs are food, blankets, clothes, temporary shelter and medicines.
There is also an urgent need to think of medium and longer-term plans for restoring livelihoods and supporting communities to reduce the risks of such disasters happening in future.
A huge challenge will be the need
to re-construct peoples’ houses in Ladakh before the freezing winter sets in.
National and international response:
More than 6,000 troops, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and police personnel along with the Indo-Tibetan Border Police have launched a massive relief and rescue operation. Six military aircraft,carrying relief material, rescue workers, doctors and sniffer dogs landed in Leh on Saturday 7 August.
Two teams from the Union Health Ministry, including a public health expert, two anesthetists, two surgeons and two orthopedic surgeons with five tones of medicines, also reached Leh from Delhi on Saturday. Civilian doctors are currently operating from the army hospital as the only civil hospital in the area is submerged.
The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) is trying to clear roads, highways and paths of debris and slush.
ACT Alliance response:
Church’s Auxiliary for Social Action (CASA) and Lutheran World Federation/Lutheran Service
India Trust (LWSIT) are currently getting in touch with local partners in the area while closely
monitoring the situation. There are many concerns to be addressed including movement of supplies and
road links that have yet to be restored as well as a dire shortage of warehousing and accommodation
CASA has local partners, including the Tibetan Relief Committee, to provide logistical and operational support. The Mountain Forum Himalayas, an apex body of NGOs working on issues of the mountain dwellers, is also lending support. Two senior CASA staff will reach Leh along with a representative of the Mountain Forum on 10 August to start setting up operations.
LWF/LWSIT plans to work with the Moravian church Ladakh, the Moravian Mission Welfare Society
and Moravian Mission School in Leh.
CASA and LWF/LWSIT will be submitting proposals for a preliminary appeal within the next few days.
Any funding indication or pledge should be communicated to Jessie Kgoroeadira, ACT Chief

I thank all of you for yesterday (10th August, 2010) to share your grief at the candle light condolence meet at Buddha Garden, Delhi university North Campus . Those who are victimized due to recent flash flood in Ladakh need our help, support and care. Many of victimized people are directly or indirectly related to us…. It is difficult for most of us to be in Ladakh in such a difficult situation when they need us. However being far away with them does not mean we are paralyzed. All victimized, traumatized and affected people due to the unexpected catastrophe need our help, so let’s unite, dedicate and work heartedly for the fund raising campaign. — Dorje Dawa
Are you feeling helpless ? feel you cannot help? watch the video below.And pick yourself up!! and make a difference.
you can download the above video from
How you can help
Things that can be done immediately by all of us who are outside Ladakh especially those in Kashmir and Jammu is to send Recharge Coupons to Airtell and Aircell Numbers that you know. This will go a long way in helping those who are stuck up holding the sets in dearth of Talktime on their mobile phones.
Things that are needed urgently include large size tarpaulins, about 20’x20′ which can be put into various use. It should be light weight yet strong to withstand tears and punctures from normal use. Silpaulin is the brand that has some reputation and not any other cheap types from Azad Market of Delhi.
