Helping Floods Victims

Flood in Budalangi, my home area,caused alot of harvoc to the natives.They destroyed buildings,property farmlands hence leaving being completely hopeless with nothing to smile about.People were really discouraged by the natural disaster.Even animals got killed in the process. However Red cross society was of great help to us,as it together with the government joined efforts and helped us.They helped us construct new homes; they were constantly supplying food,clothing and other necessities.Through we were passing through a hard time ,they really did their best in supporting us.
