"We have dispatched a medical team along with a team from DLF Foundation to assist in relief work. These medical camps will be organised by DLF Foundation in the affected areas of J& K," the organisation's chief executive Lt Gen (Retd) Rajender Singh said.

Earlier, the foundation had contacted the Indian Air Force and the Indian Army and requested them to help in transporting relief material like food, water, blankets, life saving medicines and hygiene kits to the affected families.

"The Indian Air Force agreed to provide an aircraft to airlift the material. More than 12 tonnes of food and relief material has been airlifted to flood affected areas of the valley by a special aircraft from Delhi airport on September 12 and 15," the foundation said.

"Like the first consignment sent on Friday, the second with six tonnes of rice was sent to Srinagar on Monday with supplies like biscuits, bread, packaged water, milk powder, blanket, torches and  hygiene kits, among others," said Gayatri Paul, director.
