Erosion Hit Malda to Get Relief

Social Welfare Institute in collaboration with Caritas India and Catholic Relief Services will undertake a small relief operation covering 150 families in Domahat and its neighboring villages by providing them free food worth Rs. 500 each and also build ten semi-permanent toilets for the people who have been affected by the erosion of the Ganges. The entire Operation New Life is scheduled to be completed by 10 August 2007, at a cost of Rupees 125,000 (approx. 3,100 US $/ 2,100 Euros). The children in these families will also get special baby-food. For more visuals, see the blog of 22 July 2008.
