While the primetime is being taken over by NRC, Chandrayaan & even Ranu Mondal, a village in Chirang district of Assam is still bearing the aftermath of flood.

Around 80 families have been spending their days in a flood relief camp in Dadabil village, under Chirang district, not knowing when their lives will return back to normalcy.

The houses of these unfortunate people were destroyed during the flood like many other flood affected areas in Assam. However, the catastrophe for these people didn’t just end there. Post-flood, their village is now entirely covered with silt keeping them from recuperating their losses. Also, there is no possibility of cultivation due to silt deposit.

Unlike many other flood-hit people who are gradually going back to their normal lives as the flood situation has subsided, these villagers are clinging to their lives since two months in this relief camp situated around one & half kilometres from the affected area.

“There’s no way for us to return to our homes. Hence, we are living in this relief camp since two months. People, especially, the children are falling ill here. We are using temporary toilets which again are not hygienic if we keep using for too long”, said the village head.

Multiple cases of skin infection have also been seen among the people of the camp.

“If the NGOs and the private organisations had not helped us with food and other necessary items, I am sure many of us would have died by now”, he added.

A total of 302 people are residing in the relief camp right now, two being newborns born in the camp itself with very little medical help.
