In 2007, IREF(UK) established a special Relief Fund to provide quick-response emergency aid in the wake of natural disasters, such as floods, cyclones and fires, which frequently strike the coastal region of Andhra Pradesh.
IREF has a long and distinguished history of providing aid in the form of food, cooking utensils and blankets at such times. More recently, it has been involved in ambitious housing projects to provide permanent homes for those who suffered as a result of the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami.
IREF also runs Income Generation Projects to help villagers become financially self-supporting. These are supported from the UK through our Unusual Present scheme.
