The floods came on the heels of one of India’s longest heat waves in years, which claimed
2,000 people lives in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states.
In May, the temperature climbed to as high as 118 degrees Fahrenheit in the worst affected
areas of Telangana, which includes the major city of Hyderabad.
The relief came with the long-anticipated seasonal rains in mid-June. World Vision works throughout
Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
Most recent reports indicate no deaths among children benefiting from World Vision sponsorship.
U.S. sponsors support more than 10,000 children in the affected areas.
