Pls. open your eye and extend your hands to aid the victims like earlier.
We are raising a fund to support and save the people.
May Allah save us all from such a natural digester.

AILA: Long term impact in Bangladesh!
« Reply #1 on: June 01, 2009, 01:22:33 PM »
Hi all,

In normal course cyclone attack and kill people all of a sudden then situation can be improved through different initiatives. This time AILA damages embankment that increases salinity and poisonous water will remain for long at localities covering huge areas throughout southern part of Bangladesh.

At this point it seems clear that water (with salinity and pollution) will remain for long in affected areas. Considering the situations there are numbers of people are migrating for survival and possibility of huge migration can’t ignore. Children, women, disabled are in vulnerable situation in many ways. Crisis for shelter, food, water, medicine and overall psychological stress may create conflicts among communities soon. Leaving homeland or migration is another disaster for people that can create psychological disorder among huge number of population in Bangladesh. Thousand and thousands of people are at risk and possibility to migrate different part of the country and those people with high level of anxiety of marginality can create lot of national problem. At the same time unsafe migration and trafficking possibilities also getting high. On the other hand, schools are damaged or using as cyclone center when children will be out of education that may cause of dropout or parents migration as well.

Safe home for children and intensive relief, rehabilitation and medication can reduce migration possibilities. Moreover psychosocial support they need to cope with disaster and to perform economic activities rather than begging or asking for relief all the way.
