The flood report of the Assam State Disaster Management Authority* (ASDMA) issued on the evening of 15 August, 2017 stated that about 33.3 lakh people in 3,186 villages/localities were affected by the deluge.

Despite these numbers, there is no news on how many deaf children are affected by flood in Assam.
It is a known fact that human trafficking peaks during disasters, wartime and conflict. The most vulnerable group during those times are children. The vulnerability is amplified exponentially when the child has a hearing disability. For instance, a deaf child may never be able to speak about his/her ordeals to social workers or law enforcement authorities.
