Amphan: Rebuild lives, one piece at a time

Here is a ground update from our partners for June 3 and 4.

 

Chetana Sangha is working to repair damaged embankments. They gave food supplies to the 250 or so labourers who are repairing the dams. In Kuemuri village: there are about 350 families whose houses are broken; the salt water in the rivers is an immediate problem. There is odor everywhere from the rotting leaves, and Chetana is suspecting that the village will have problems such as diarrhea and skin diseases, similar to their experience after Aila. It is important to get the polluted water pumped out, so that they can get fresh water in the river from the monsoon, which is imminent. People specially requested help in the pumping effort and in supplying chun/alum/bleaching powder etc from Chetana. 

Chetana distributed chuun and alum to Kandepur village. They are also working in Achintapur village on 5 June to supply food to 105 labourers who are working to repair the dams. 

 

BTS (Baikunthapur Tarun Sangha) will be running a community kitchen in Kultali. From June 5, in Patharpratima K-Plot, they will be starting a 2 unit 200 head shelter for 50 families severely affected by inundation. Their team is going to give dry foods to 1000 families and tarpaulins to 100 families. On Saturday (June 6) they plan to distribute 500 NFI kits (buckets, water mug, mosquito nets, bedsheets etc) in K-Plot. Besides, they are planning to start a beejtala (nursery for paddy), plantation nurseries and begin dewatering efforts.
