Maintaining the trend of always being at the forefront in taking up social initiatives and in supporting Government efforts during various emergency situations like flood, School of Technology, Assam Don Bosco University (ADBU), Azara, Guwahati organized a flood relief camp on 7th August 2016 for the recent flood victims of badly affected Jargaon village of Morigaon District, Assam- the North Eastern state of India, in association with Indian Students Organization (ISO).

Eight students and three staff members along with five volunteers from the ISO distributed the aids to the needy people under the guidance of Mr. Jesif Ahmed, Assistant Professor of EEE department and Dr. Biju Mani Das, Coordinator of Commerce Department, ADBU. Local volunteer Mr. Utpal Das selflessly extended his helping hand for the campaign.

More than 200 food packets along with clothes were distributed among the families of submerged Belimara-Bherbheri, Jargaon with a population of approximately 1000 people. Each food packet weighed approximately 6.7 kilograms and consisted of 9 items – Rice (2 kg), Daal (500 gram), Potato (1 kg), Sugar (400 gram), Milk (500 ml), Nutrition-rich Biscuits (200 gram), Mineral water (2 ltr), 2 candles and one matchbox.

Student volunteers from ADBU and ISO worked tirelessly for 2 days to accomplish this assignment on time.

"I wholeheartedly appreciate the whole ADBU family and all the volunteers for the overwhelming support they have given to this flood relief camp in Morigaon district. Good work is always seen and one doesn't need banners all around for that", Jesif Ahmed commented.
