Inter alia, the Trust is doing a survey to understand the possible future economic activities for the villagers, “as sporadic relief distribution can’t be a solution for them in the long run”. As of now, IDIA’s alumni, Nazrul Molla, has taken the lead to conduct the survey in Purandar village in Sunderbans. To contribute towards the relief work, Click Here.
