Delhi witnessed one of the biggest disasters of recent times. After a huge span of 40 years, it has realized that no matter how big a metropolitan city it is, natural disasters are not far if the environment is not given its due importance. Delhi received almost 112% more rainfall than the average so far in the last monsoon season. People residing near Yamuna were evacuated to a safer place or advised not to get out of their homes in the situation. What has become evident is that haphazard urbanization and encroachment in natural drainage ecosystems have taken a big toll on people’s lives, most importantly the poor or common man’s lives.

Due to a lack of access to resources and their socio-economic background, people adjust in dingy and congested neighborhoods, but when disasters like the Delhi floods 2023 come, they are the worst hit due to these conditions. Irregularly maintained sewage and drainage systems, overcrowded habitation, illegal encroachment of colonies, and no proper garbage disposal mechanism, all add to degrading the situation. Nidan, after analyzing the situation of those affected, mobilized funds for supporting the victims in rehabilitation.  With the support of Nestle India Limited distributed dry ration kits to the most affected communities in Delhi which helped them immensely.

Victims were mapped, mobilized and distribution camps organized on different dates for the distribution in the following regions. A total of 8,000 kits were distributed across these regions.
