Aid sought for 7.5 lakh children affected by floods

About 7.5 lakh children are affected by floods across the State, specially in Kurnool, Mahabubnagar, Nalgonda, Krishna and Guntur districts and an estimated Rs. 3.14 crore is required to get them access to medicare so that an outbreak of diarrhoea and other water-borne diseases can be checked.

13 per cent of children under 5 years of age were already acutely malnourished.

The current level of acute malnutrition in Andhra Pradesh is already just below the global emergency trigger threshold. With so many children denied access to clean water and sanitation, they are especially at a greater risk of water-borne diseases including diarrhoea, one of the biggest killers of children in India,” he added.

A donation of Rs. 1,200 would ensure that a family of six got a set of kitchen utensils, including a stove and fuel, pots and pans for cooking as well as plates and glasses.
