Amid the devastating floods in Maharashtra, a madrasa in Kolhapur has housed and rehabilitated around 400 flood victims, including women and children. The Darul Uloom Madrasa in Shiroli, Kolhapur has arranged for their food, accommodation, bedding, and even a team of doctors to attend to the sick, ANI reported.
Over 200 people have died in several incidents related to floods so far in the state. A total of 4,34,185 people from eight districts have been evacuated to safer places, as rescue operations continue.
The victims were stranded on the Pune-Bengaluru National Highway 4 in the Shiroli area of Kolhapur due to floods, so the Darul Uloom Madrasa decided to accommodate them in their premises.
