India in June 2013 witnessed an enormous devastation in the state of Uttarakhand causing floods and landslides in the country’s worst natural catastrophe since the 2004 Tsunami. The massive destruction left about 100,000 pilgrims & tourist trapped in the valleys leading to the three of the four pilgrimage sites, with paramilitary troops evacuating more than 110,000 people from the flood ravaged area.
In the backdrop of severe natural disaster, adversity becomes the crucible in which love of mankind in tasted & the sheer magnitude of this catastrophe urged Indus University & it’s associates to join hands together and reach out to the distressed. Both the organizations with their voluntary and organized efforts successfully donated Rs.14.48 Lakhs as relief fund to the victims of Uttarakhand through the benevolent hands of CM of Gujarat on 12/08/2013. Indus University has always believed in private action for the public good and engaged in philanthropy.
