Thank you for encouraging us after the floods and thank you to those who donated; we are so grateful. We ladies have been given help when we were at our lowest point. This has inspired us to help people when they are at their lowest. We were saving money to have a Teej celebration but when we saw the devastation of the floods and met the poor families who lost their homes and clothes, we had no questions at all that we needed to help these people. We used the Teej money and donated more to provide bags of rice and clothing. Rice is too expensive now and will cost even more because the floods destroyed the crops. It is so hard.
So many families have lost their homes, especially the very poor people who are living on government land which is low lying. We are asking the government not to rebuild the homes in places where the problem will happen all over again. We are saying to they must give these poor people better land and build homes that will withstand the floods because they happen again and again.
Here are photos of the lands and the people with their bags of rice and we have us buying clothing for the people who lost their clothing.
