Question no. 01

From whom you have been benefited most?

The affected people are received sufficient relief from the both Government and NGO. They also got relief from other various sectors. But there stay unequal distribution of this relief among the affected and the non-affected people. Some surveyed sample people said that, sometime the non-affected got more relief than the affected people. VGF cards are not always distributed according the right manner. Above it most of the people in this area are happy over the both Government and Private organization because of their quick initiative in this regard. Efficiency in providing relief among the affected people are shown through the table below-

Our surveyed people said that the most efficient in distributing relief is the NGO. They are more cautious about the corruption and take careful steps to stop or remove the biasness at the time of providing relief. Bangladesh Army shows a high performance in distributing relief and a good number of affected people believe that the total responsibilities of distributing relief need to provide on them. Both Union Parishad and the Government organization is relatively show poor performance in distributing relief.

Summary of our Analyze
 
Cyclones in the Bay of Bengal Because of the funnel shaped coast of the Bay of Bengal, Bangladesh very often becomes the landing ground of cyclones formed in the Bay of Bengal. Most of the damage occurs in the coastal regions of Khulna, Patuakhali, Barisal, Noakhali and Chittagong and the offshore islands of Bhola, Hatiya, Sandwip, Manpura, Kutubdia, Maheshkhali, Nijhum Dwip, Urir Char and other newly formed islands. We take Kalapara Upazilla as our sample area because it is an area which is highly affected by SIDR. We made our survey over 25 affected People. Summary over the sample people are given below-
 
In our survey most of people are male because it is easy to collect date form male, and female are want to avoid information. We try to collect date form such person, who are really affected by the cyclone SIDR. In our survey area most of the families are medium then small family due to modernization and small number are large family due to urban area. The people who are taken as sample are involved in different profession-such as service, business, fishing, owner of grocery shop, agriculture, farming etc. but hedge change is occur in their occupation pattern after and the before SIDR.
 
Because of SIDR, in this Kalapara area the attitude and the pattern of the people towards occupation have been dramatically changed. Some people lost everything for their business; someone lost their only boat for fishing, someone lost their grocery shop etc. As a result a great deal of change in occurs among the people of this area according to their socio- economic factors. Most of the people who are employed before SIDR are lost their employment because of this SIDR. A good number of people lost or change their business after SIDR. So SIDR affect directly on the socio-economic factor of the people of this area.
 
Through our analyze we see that most of the person’s assets are decrease after SIDR. The affected lost their house, boat, tree, cash money, gold’s, shop, cattle, etc. Even after SIDR some established businessmen lost everything and now their income level and the amount of assets is almost zero.
 
 
Both government and the NGO are supporting the people through their re-habitation program. Under this program they get basically rice, oil, pulse, ready food, house, blanket, financial supports, others. But in the time of providing those aids inequality is occurred among the affected and non affected people in this area.
 
After SIDR dramatic change is incurred among the people of this area in the matter of taking loans. The general number of taking loan in highly increased from the before any other time. Basically most of the people of the poor family take loan in this crisis moment. Through our survey we see that in almost every time corruption is occur in distributing relief. But in some situation the amount of this corruption is little and in very few areas this rate is high. According to our survey we found that from the both government and the non-government organization the most effectiveness and the efficiency is the NGO side by side the contribution of Bangladesh Army is also very circuital.
