Babul Sinha, Cachar, Assam

Babul Sinha and his family of five were severely affected by the floods. The sudden surge of water left them struggling for a safer, dry land to survive and save their lives in this community.

During the floods, they faced several challenges, including the loss of property and no access to electricity or communication. Babul’s son also suffered from various health issues. The aftermath of the floods has been a very difficult time for them, and they have struggled to rebuild their lives.

“The struggle to make ends meet continues, and the losses have been difficult to bear”, said Babul about the impact of the floods.

Habitat for Humanity India provided Humanitarian Aid Kits to disaster affected people like Babul to help them in the aftermath of the floods. The HAKs are part of the immediate response provided to families severely affected by natural disasters, such as floods, earthquakes, and cyclones. These kits contain essential items that are required in the aftermath of a disaster such as basic hygiene supplies, water filters, blankets, utensils and other items necessary for survival and recovery.

"After the flood waters receded, this is the first relief kit we have received. It will help us restore our lives and homes," said Babul.

The distribution of HAKs has brought immense relief to families like Babul’s who have struggled to recover from the devastating impact of natural disasters.

Habitat for Humanity places the families affected by natural disasters on a path to durable and sustainable shelter solutions in a phase-wise manner through its Pathways to Permanence disaster response strategy.
