There was a health center of government which was constructed well and survived, families also shifted there. When inquired form the local police and inhabitants, a very limited relief goods was distributed among the limited families by the government because no other humanitarian organization reached there. GPP held survey and identified 800 families. Families were registered in a standard format developed by GPP team.
