The Rains are extremely heavy in and around the coastal zone of Maharashtra from June to September. We receive 1363 mm rainfall every year. With the onset of rains, times get very tough for the citizens in and around Mumbai city. Staying dry is of extreme importance else one can get pneumonia, influenza, etc.

Considering the situation, it was decided to procure umbrellas for Kond residents to protect themselves from the harsh rains. We distributed 50 umbrellas to the families there. It is particularly helpful for the kids when they go to school. This has reduced absenteeism from school.
