Challenge

The agri farm sector was totally damaged in Pudukottai district due to 'Gaja' disaster. The losses like life, livelihood, house, children's educational equipments, coconut trees, paddy field, road transportation, electricity supply, cattles etc. 341820 houses were fully & partly damaged including 2000000 permanent trees. 307819 people were housed in 556 relief shelters. The loss of property/livelihood, basic needs, electricity & water supply sources are yet to be replaced by govt./NGOs.

Solution

The men/women/children/young girls & the aged people are staying in relief shelters. Their stay itself has created many social, health, psychosomatic problems. They are required to be rehabilitated with reasonable measures like family dry ration for at least 2 weeks, sleeping mats, dresses, replacement of roof, educational materials and psycho somatic counseling to the victims. If these minimum measures are given, the victims can come out of the cyclone grief and restart their life.

Long-Term Impact

The project is providing inputs to 200 affected families covering 5 villages in Pudukottai district. the immediate relief needs are met through the supply of dry ration, roof materials, repairing the houses, supply of drinking water, educational materials etc. For their sustainable livelihood we develop land for the farmers and provided milch animal for the families followed with income generation programme training. This will enable them to replace the losses of Gaja disaster.
