Many NGOs are working in the flood affected districts where almost five million people have been rendered homeless. Ta’awan Trust is one such NGOs.

The relief team of the trust went to Araria and Purnia on September 7, 2008. The team visited five camps in Araria town; namely Azad Academy camp, Town Hall camp, camp at Jamia Rasheedia Salfia, camp of affected people of Farbisganj and Al Shams Millat College where migrated people from different parts of Araria district have taken shelter.

The team distributed food packets including much needed food for children, milk. But flood victims in these camps are still facing acute shortage of milk and garments etc. In Purnia the team of Ta’awun Trust went in those camps where victims were waiting for food grains and distributed food packets and other relief materials. It also visited many camps which were difficult to reach like the one in Ram Nagar.

It is the observation of many organizations like Ta’awan Trust working in the flood affected region that people in the relief camps are yet to have sufficient food grains, proper medical relief, drinking water, milk for babies, food for children, garments and proper sanitation etc.

The trust has planned to undertake rehabilitation work in the flood affected areas after three months.

It has appealed to all to participate in its efforts to extend a helping hand to the needy. All the donations made for the flood victims will be published in its annual report. (All donations to the Trust are exempted under Section 80G of the Income Tax Act 1961, and it has a permanent registration under FCRA (Foreign Contribution Regulation Act).
