Kerala is going through its worst flood crisis since 1924, Non stop rains has caused havoc in some parts of the state. And none other than the Indian Army has come to the rescue of people in the flood-hit areas.

In Malappuram, a road got washed away and the Army’s brilliant skills were once again put to use when it constructed a 40-feet long bridge using local resources.

Indian Army’s Engineer Task Force helped to built the bridge with help from local people.


This bridge made from fallen palm trees was a timely rescue act which helped people in need.

They have also built a makeshift bridge using trees in Wayanad and have rescued around 800 stranded people.

Personnel from the Indian Army, Navy, Air Force, and NDRF are involved in the relief and rescue operations in some of the badly affected districts in Kerala.

The Army has titled the relief work in Kerala as ‘Operation Shayog’.

Acts like these make us very proud of Indian Army
