  Summary

 

 

The narmada valley is facing submergence again this year and it is more severe due to raised Sardar sarovar dam height and severe monsoon. This relief program is for those who are most severely affected by submergence and is called the Jansahyog program because we are appealing to the people and civil society at large to help by making donations of about Rs5000-6000 that can provide food-grains to a family for 6 months or purchase tarpaulins to shelter families or provide medical and other needed relief help.

In 2004 and 2005, AID supported Jan Sahyog program coordinated by Bombay Sarvodaya Friendship Centre, and Narmada Navnirman Abhiyan and sent around $25,000 during the last two years.


 
 

  Achievements

 

 

Distribute food grains, chattais, blankets, clothing and provide temporary shelter to provide immediate relief for 600 families in the Narmada Valley.

 

  Goals

 

 

Provide relief to the people most affected by submergence and those who are stranded without any relief or rehabilitation. Tarpaulin sheets to provide a temporary shelter in the beating rains for those whose houses get washed away, clothes, chattais, blankets, foodgrains are needed most urgently for those adivasi families that have not gotten any compensation or very little crop-loss compensation and show lands have been submerged for several year with no sight of rehabilitation.
