The activities were also of different form. Ready food and pure drinking water was distributed, tents were supplied, houses were built, schools were restructured, roads were reconstructed, seeds were supplied, fertilizer were given, cash was handed over as short and long term loan.

A white paper on Sidr should be published on the magnitude of the devastation, details of the contribution in Cash and kind by different states, organisations and individuals and details of the utilisation of the donation are needed to be elaborated in the white paper.

This government advocates for transparency and accountability and let us see how transparent they are regarding the money doanted for Sidr and how efficiently they have managed the crisis
