Tinku Gogoi, Divya, Pranjit, Ranjan, Sameer, Jahidul, and Kanishka who are active members of the NGO were a part of the distribution drive.
To deliver food and water to flood victims, the NGO enlisted the assistance of local banana-powered boat service. In the flood-prone area of Hatigaon, they also conducted a flood relief drive. Numerous families in these locations have been impacted by artificial flooding.
Other areas impacted by the water include Chandmari, Kharghuli, Nizarapar, Anilnagar, Satgaon, and the Pandu-Kamakhya route. For the past three days, most of Guwahati has been without electricity.
