This project "To Provide Housing for 298 Flood Victims in India" has been successfully implementing in the Avanigadda and Nagayalanka Mandals of Krishna District in Andhra Pradesh, India.  Since the villagers of these two mandals are severely affected during the floods, ASSIST staff are motivating to the flood victims and bringing them into normal life.  ASSIST has taken the initiative to build new houses for the flood victims and construction of new houses to these flood victims is underway with the support of generous donors through GlobalGiving.

The following information shows the status of the Construction of 298 Houses to the Flood Victims in Avanigadda and Nagayalanka Mandals in India.

  • Houses fully completed with sanitary latrine                  – 16
  • Houses completed but not the latrine                            – 17
  • Houses completed but flooring yet to be done                – 53
  • Houses with roof slab completed                                  – 56
  • Houses come up to roof level                                       – 10
  • Houses come up to lintel level                                       – 6
  • Houses come up to window sill level                               – 6
  • Houses come up to Basement level                                – 8
  • Houses not started yet                                                 -126

We look forward to the continued support from the generous donors in order to complete the rest of the houses.

Thank you for you kind support as your support gives the new hope to the flood victims.

The following is a postcard from Neeharika Tummala, GlobalGiving's In-the-Field Representative in India and Bangladesh, about her recent visit to ASSIST.

Thanks to ASSIST, I got to travel across a part of my native Andhra Pradesh that I never knew existed which is the island of Nagayalanka. I didn’t know that a place as remote as the Sundarban existed so close to home. Thanks to the great reputation of ASSIST’s work there, we got a free ride over on the ferry and I even got a mango from one of the villagers when they heard I had come over from GlobalGiving! Such is the sweet nature of many of the village folk in the surrounding areas.

The island has several villages, but I visited one village where ASSIST has constructed several homes. I got to see several homes in the before and after state. The before state is primarily built using mud and straw. While these homes are cool for heat, they are easily destroyed in storms and flood as they are at a low level. The newly built homes are elevated, and support two related families such as two brothers and their families. The interesting unexpected use is that families are also using parts of their home for storage of fish and prawns that they catch, which is a great use! These homes were built with funding from ASSIST, the government of India and partially the homeowner themselves. So rather than charity, it is a model of empowerment where residents feel that they are owners rather than recipients of charity.

While I was getting the tour from happy families with new homes, we also had onlookers in half finished homes, which were started thanks to a government scheme, but were never finished due to storms and lack of funding. ASSIST hopes to raise funds quickly so that they can salvage the structures of these homes and save on material costs. The impact will be huge for a marginal cost.

Finally, the ladies from the village fed me the best fish curry I have ever had in my life. If you are ever in Andhra, I highly recommend a visit to experience the hospitality and the simplicity of this hardworking community.
