  • Our strategy is to focus on these 4 blocks, which are Bellore in Khagaria, Triveniganj and Chatapur in Suffole and Saharsha in Pattarghat. In Bellore and Triveniganj we have already established the place and all.

Two main concern we noticed

  • We still need food material as water is receding there are many village which still need food as there are mthing to eat for villagers
  • Government is forcing people to vacate the relief camp and go to villages by making false promises like Survey etc, but reality is there is no place for these people to live once they come back to their village, we are forcing government to keep the relief camp for some more time.
