unnamed

Dear Friends,

You must be following the news on the worsening floods in Jammu and Kashmir. While we are working in some states already struggling with floods, the J & K floods are taking on the magnitude of Kosi and Uttarakhand floods. The upcoming winters are only going to add to this nationwide calamity. Goonj is trying its best to reach out relief in J & K and other states.

This is an URGENT APPEAL to join GOONJ for ‘RAHAT FLOODS’We urge you to initiate pan- India campaigns in your offices, schools, colleges and get each one from your network to act..

Urgent requirements-

a) Material: Good quality cookers ( only 5 ltrs and ISI marked), utensil sets (6 plates and glasses, 2 cooking vessel with lid and spoons,tea pan, kadai, chimta/tong ),thick blankets and woolens, good quality torches and solar lamps, soaps, disinfectants, chlorine tablets ( only the ones which are good for 10 liters and above), candles & match box, tooth brush and paste,children clothing, floaters and chappals, tea leaves, milk powder, dry ration primarily pulses, spices and cooking oil, sanitary napkins, basic medicines, masks and asthma inhalers. Please make sure to send the material to the Goonj offices. Here is the list- http://goonj.org/?page_id=2272

Ready to Eat Food: Roasted peanuts (moongfali), Biscuits, Namkeen, Dry fruits, Rusks.
Ration for cooking: Rice, Pulses, Kala Chana, Spices, Chilly powder, Milk powder, tea leaves, Kashmiri tea leaves, tea bags, sugar, cooking oil, Wheat & Salt.  (Humble request- NOT to send perishable items, drinking water bottles, cooked food and dirty/damaged or expired material to any of the center please.)
Three Important points from Srinagar..
– Please do not purchase very expensive soaps, shampoos etc. better to buy more of reasonably good quality in the same money.
– Do not send perishable items, expired material, cooked food, chiwra/murmurey etc. as from transport, space to management and distribution, these items are creating problem.
– Do not give small bottles of water or 5/- namkeen packs as we are going far off places and these items are not only insufficient for families but are also creating a big environment havoc. Also, best to give water- in the places near Delhi only as from cities in south,west the transportation cost is much higher than the cost of water.

Urgent Material List

As on 22nd Sept’14:

1. Good quality cookers ( only 5 ltrs and ISI marked)

2. Utensil sets (6 plates and glasses, 2 cooking vessel with lid and spoons, tea pan, kadai, chimta/tong )

3. Thick blankets and woolens

4. Good quality torches and solar lamps

5. Soaps, disinfectants, candles & match box, tooth brush and paste,children clothing, floaters, chappals, tea leaves and milk powder

6. Dry ration primarily pulses,spices and cooking oil

7. Sanitary napkins

8. Basic medicines, chlorine tablets ( only the ones which are good for 10 liters and above), masks and asthma inhalers. Click here for the detailed list- http://goonj.org/?page_id=2251

Be cautious: With the tonnes of good quality material,we are also getting a huge quantity of sub-standard material. Many traders use this opportunity to supply bad quality blankets, thin tarpaulins to expired food material. Large number of blankets are small in size and thin which are of no use here at all. Do not just see the samples,check the stock as often the samples are good but inside the packages the material is bad. We faced the same in earlier disasters 

4 Important points from Srinagar..
