Relief to flood affected people in Majuli

Society for Srimanta Sankaradeva extended some assistance to the flood & erosion affected people of Majuli on November 22, 2012. The relief operation was carried out in Salmora area, which happens to be the worst affected area in Majuli. People are still living on embankment there as they have lost their homes to erosion. While they received some aid from different corners during the monsoon season, now they have no relief as the donors are under the impression that the flood affected people have returned to own homes. But these people do not have any home at all where they can return to. Some people were even starving, the Society learnt. So Society for Srimanta Sankaradeva spent some amount from its account within its capability to distribute food materials consisting of rice and lentil among the homeless people.

Volunteers of Society for Srimanta Sankaradeva who offered their invaluable service in giving assistance to the flood-affected people on November 22 are : Anirban Dutta, Bijit Dutta, Mitu Khataniar, Jadumoni Saikia, Lakhi Bhuyan, Ajit Hazarika, Sanjib Das, Jibeswar Kalita, Bhaiti Hatimota and Dhrubajyoti Bora. Rajib Dutta and Pradip Hazarika also put in contributions in arranging things.

Society for Srimanta Sankaradeva has been associated with the effort to get Majuli enlisted as a World Heritage Site.
