Assam Flood

The state of Assam is frequently ravaged by the fury of mighty Brahmaputra and its tributaries causing untold human misery and devastation of indescribable nature. The flood in Assam is such a regular feature and it’s our responsibility to provide relief to our people.

It is appalling  to see the wrath of Mother Nature and to witness how a river that gives everything to the people and a river whom we worship “Namami Brahmaputra” can turn into a river of sorrow.

Hundreds of people die and thousands are displaced every year due to floods in different parts of India. Like it happens in every natural calamity, it’s often the poor who suffer the most.

Year 2020, Double Trouble

The year 2020, the world is still facing the misery caused by Covid 19 and now it is double trouble in the state of Assam as it is witnessing the worst flood.

The impact of Covid19 pandemic has reached even the far flung villages of North East India. The state government imposed lockdown in almost all the districts. The lockdown has severely impacted the otherwise self-sufficient villages. The supply of food and other essentials started dwindling. NomadLawyer in collaboration with NGO Sarvahitey and project My Pincode has provided relief during Pandemic.

WHY RAJAKUCHI VILLAGE ?

Our association with Rajakuchi Village Morigaon district dates back to the year 2016, when we started our first flood relief operation. The association with the people of this village has now culminated into a strong bond. Subsequently, we have been continuously working towards the development of this village by providing flood relief and also relief during Covid 19.   We aim to work towards the holistic development of this village. The people of this village and our local volunteers have a special place in our hearts.

It’s difficult to distinguish Rajakuchi village in Morigaon district of Assam from any other village in that region. Lush and scenic, inhabited by simple folks, it’s a place which has become part of our regular relief operations in Northeast India.
