“I must appreciate IGSSS for their efforts to reach out to the people of our village and organizing relief distribution camp in this manner where everybody got their due in a hassle free manner. This is the first time in our village, relief material reached to the people for whom it was meant, And that too with honour and dignity. The timing of relief distribution was also good as the holy month of Muharram will begin in few days, people will be able to buy food items and material.”

“I can’t express the importance of the relief especially the timing of providing the cash. It was like a lakh to me. We were displaced and had recently returned home to find everything in ruins. We had nothing left with us, not a single thing to eat. As our food grain stock was exhausted. I was very disturbed by the fact that EID is approaching and we had nothing to eat and was considering borrowing some money from my friend to buy food items for my family. A day before Eid I received surprise EIDI (money given on Eid as gift) from IGSSS and was able to buy food for my family. I am thankful to IGSSS for cash assistance.”

I bought tin sheets to build a temporary shed for living and the cash of Rs 1000 contributed to the expenses of these tin sheets”.
