While our alma mater has not been affected by the natural disaster that has struck Uttarakhand during the week of June 17th, 2013, thousands of lives have been lost, cities swept away and countless people affected .
IIT Roorkee - Uttarakhand Relief Initiative has been launched to mobilize resources in an effort to support the victims of this disaster.
This initiative is being spearheaded by IIT-Roorkee Alumni Association of North America and IIT Roorkee Heritage Foundation and IIT Roorkee.
All funds raised from this initiative will be sent to "IIT Roorkee - Uttarakhand Reconstruction Fund" which is managed by IIT Roorkee and will be used towards relief and reconstruction efforts by IIT Roorkee in Uttarakhand.
