The great support from #GlobalGiving on the job to rescue, recover and rehabilitate the most affected people Wayanad, Kerala, due to mammoth flood. The following success story which is an explicit example facilitated by our team.
The small dwelling units (max. 50 to 100 sq.ft) of these residents belonged to the oldest form of design with thatched roofing (with dried coconut/palm or used plastic carry bags collected from garbage’s) added to overcrowding and congestion. Without proper roofing, during the rainy season they were forced to seek shelters in the nearby colony which has well constructed roof, which left young children and elderly people without a safe and protected ambiance. The heavy rain has worsened their situation leaving them in damaged shelter. The current financial strain has left these people unable to rebuild the damaged shelters.
