HABITAT DEVELOPMENT

A safe dwelling place is a dream of every human being. Moreover it is one of the basic needs of every human being viz. food, clothing and shelter. In this sense it is a right of every individual to live in a safe secure house together with his kith and kin. This basic right is not often fulfilled in the case of a good number of unfortunate families. A large number of poor and marginalized are still far from realizing this ardent desire. Life situation of the people living in Kuttanad region of Alappuzha district, one of the major areas of our Archdiocese, is worth mentioning here in connection with shelter issues. Kuttanad being flood prone area, flood related problems are a perennial issue. The most devastating floods occurred during 2018 and 2019 totally disrupted the habitation in Kuttanad. Tens of thousands of families lost their dwelling house in the flood either totally collapsed or with major damages. Changanacherry Social Service Society pursues rather an enabling process with regard to the basic human infrastructure development by creating linkages with, different donor agencies, Government housing schemes and that of financial institutions. This year the Society could assist 396 families from Kuttanad region to construct the dwelling house under the following Housing schemes.
