A Great Relief - Unconditional Cash Support

Dear Patrons,

Thank you for your continued support to or efforts for providing relief to the victims affected by severe floods in eastern parts of India.

We are sharing a story from the field of how your support creates tangible positive change in the lives of peple affected by floods.

Mrs. Khatun  from Chirang (No.1 Chowrabari) in Assam represents one such household who witnessed one of the worst floods in nearly a decade. Her family largely depends on agriculture for their livelihood. However, the unusually high rainfall this year and subsequent flooding left heaps of sand in acres of paddy fields destabilizing the very source of livelihood of small and marginal farmers settled across the river basin.

She narrated how they could barely save their lives and found shelter on the embankment along with many others in distress. With no other means, they survived on dry ration supported by the government in the initial days and lived in extreme insecurity. Mrs. Khatun was helpless, unable to feed the family and to meet their basic needs decided to sell off their cows. However, upon returning home there was nothing to restore. Her livestock was dead, stored grains were contaminated by fungi and houses were about to collapse.

After losing almost everything, Unconditional Cash Transfer (UCT) support, as expressed by Mrs. Khatun , was a great relief and provided at a very crucial time. She bought a pair of heifer (young cow) with the cash support she received from IGSSS with the hope that it will generate income for the family in the long run.

Your generous support helps us to reach out to greater number of beneficiaries on the gound.

With Gratitude,

Indo – Global Social Service Society
