Who Are We?

Share on Facebook

A Silicon Valley based civic organization, UMA (Uttarakhand Mandal of America) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization under the US IRS Tax Code section 170. UMA has launched Operation Rebuild with the goal of helping restore the lives of at least 2000 families who have been devastated in the recent flood related calamity in Uttarakhand, India. Your contributions are tax deductible. UMA is making a global appeal and working with organizers in other North American cities.

People We Are Trying To Help

The people we would be supporting are hard-working, proud people with meager resources who have lost their homes, small businesses, and sole bread-earners. We believe many of the victims are the families of India's brave service men and women, who deserve all our support at the time of their need.

Our goal is to rebuild their lives by providing funds and materials to help heal the local communities.

Funds Management

A committee of Trustees from AIF and UMA is responsible for the management of all funds, including the due diligence and effective deployment of all funds raised. Proper progress reports will also be posted from time to time.
