Due to lack of support system, they are struggling to revive their livelihood. Lack of financial inclusion, lack of access to other services the community is still struggling to cope up with the situation.

While distributing relief to the affected families it was observed that short term relief is not sufficient for the families. The affected families required long term support to revive their livelihood to be resilient. and supported 111 families by providing support in economic activity in last one year. FST wants to extend this support to more 100 families by providing support in economic activity.
