drinking water to the people in these divasted areas.
Due to the non-availability of sufficient number
of water bowsers, it is difficult to convey water
from distance places for distribution of water requirement
among the needy people.
the need for free supply of milk food for those
affected children too at the present juncture is
another important aspect to be attended to.
