Prime Minister Narendra Modi grants Rs 500 crore flood relief to Kerala 19.8.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
After conducting an aerial survey of flood-hit Kerala, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday immediately announced flood relief of Rs 500 crore for the state. Heavy rains have lashed Kerala for nearly nine days and over 380 people have died so far. Over 3.14 lakh people have been moved to relief camps. A new red alert was issued on Saturday for all the 14 districts in Kerala, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said. There are growing fears that the number of deaths could escalate rapidly with countless people still marooned, desperate for food, drinking water and medicines. "In Kerala, I took stock of the situation arising in the wake of the devastating floods across the state. Joined a review meeting and undertook an aerial survey to assess the damage caused by flooding. The nation stands firmly with Kerala in this hour," PM Modi tweeted.

Water, sanitation and hygiene is a global crisis: WaterAid's global advocacy director 16.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Supplying clean water and toilets for all could take hundreds of years in countries like Eritrea and Namibia unless governments step up funding to tackle the problem and its harmful effects on health, an international development agency warned on Monday. WaterAid - which says nearly 850 million people lack clean water - predicted the world will miss a global goal to provide drinking water and adequate sanitation for everyone by 2030. Meeting it will cost $28 billion per year, the non-profit said. "Water, sanitation and hygiene is a global crisis," said Savio Carvalho, WaterAid's global advocacy director. "We're really calling for governments to pull up their socks," he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation from the United Nations in New York. From July 9-18, governments are reviewing progress on the Sustainable Development Goals, which were agreed at the United Nations in 2015, with a focus on six of the 17. Last week, UN officials said barriers to achieving the 2030 water and sanitation targets range from ...
