Especially in the first three days, the difficulties were getting worse. “all the roads leading to our village were closed and at that moment we felt desperate,” fatima says as she explains the arrival of the sened organization to the village and how their conditions began to gradually improve.

A group counseling session was also provided on ways to prevent diseases and personal hygiene for the village residents.
