Earlier this year in April, in Maghwan village, a storm destroyed a poultry farm that inhibited about 140 fowls, almost all of which died too. Jagannath Chaudhary, owner of the farm, has pleaded the District Officer and the Veterinary department for assistance but to no avail. VV-PACS Community Correspondent Saroj Paraste reports from Jabalpur District of Madhya Pradesh.
CALL TO ACTION: Call the District Collector of Kundam Block, on +91-9424319144, and demand that the necessary steps be taken to provide the assistance that this man and his family require to rebuild their lives.
The farm was the source of livelihood for Jagannath and his family and the storm has left him despondent. So far, neither investigation nor assistance has been forthcoming thereby prolonging the family's misery in the wake of this natural disaster.
