Flood 2018

We had faced heavy flood in the month of August which affected the major portion of our diocese: 19,801 families of 34 parishes, in which there are altogether 87,876 faithful (44665 women, 14153 children and 6567 infants, 8860 Elderly). 3,736 houses were damaged, in which 421 were completely destroyed and 3315 were partially destroyed. The people lost completely their means of livelihood: carpentry workshops, Chinese nets for the fishing, electrical workshops etc. The school children lost their study materials too. Many lost their hope for the future. In this situation the people affected by the flood has to restart everything from zero. So we need to address the current situation of the people. The flood relief and rehabilitation works are going on. The constructions of 30 houses are progressing… 5houses are blessed already,in that one house sponsored by priests of the Diocese. They offer their one month allowance and those who are in abroad more than that.
