Sometimes, massive disasters occur in here which stuns the general life and livelihood of the general people.

Some of the families who fall victim also get rehabilitation support for sewing and farming activity by BEDS. The supported villagers are doing well with duck, chicken, sheep, seeds and earning money.
The Amphan affected people could not come out from the damage due to Amphan and they are facing the corona virus pandemic. At present, they have no work. They are living a miserable life. Now they are at the risk of devastating cyclone Yash. Some of the Amphan affected people said, “In this season, every moment we live with the fear of cyclones. It takes all our goods as well as our happiness. Every time, we pray so that we can survive from the cyclones.”
We would like to thank all our donors for their support to help the Amphan affected people. We are requesting all our donors to start monthly recurring donation by clicking the following link;
