More than 100 families are surviving without shelter under scorching sun. Simply no power, no food, no water, no raods, even no medicines and medical facilities for the sicks. Self help is continuing to rehabilitate the flood affected areas. More emphasis is towards the rehabilitation of roads. It will take more than 30 days to reopen the roads for small vehicles and further time required to further flourish the roads. Not a single day passed without the rehabilitation work by the local community. Hundreds of people busy in the relief and rehabilitation of flood victims. As a manager of GADO, I present my tribute and salute the civilized community of Garam Chashma. Thumbs up for the community and their humanistic approach. ]]>
