Flooding in Chennai Province India
Flooding in India
Shelter-related items and cash
A sum of $275,000 CAD was allocated to Oxfam Canada to meet the needs of 6,600 people affected by flooding in Chennai, India.
Heavy rainfall during November and again in December flooded several districts, killing more than 300 and affecting more than 2 million people.
Oxfam Canada is providing WASH and emergency shelter, but there is a critical lack of cash and resources to meet daily needs, to rebuild shelter and restart livelihoods.
Breakdown of funding via the Canadian Humanitarian Assistance Fund (CHAF): $206,250 (Global Affairs Canada); $27,500 (Humanitarian Coalition); $41,250 (Oxfam Canada).
