In July 2005, Mumbai experienced one of the biggest 24-hour rainfalls ever recorded. The 944 mm (37.2 inches) of rain left almost half the city submerged and nearly one thousand people dead. The area where the M.N. Roy Human Development Campus is situated was also affected, and books in the ground floor library of the Center were damaged as also some medicines. Despite this, the Center’s staff were able to assist one thousand families in the surrounding slums with relief and rehabilitation material.
