In order to satisfy the immediate needs of animals in flood-affected Assam, the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) has decided to provide Rs 1.5 crore toward approximately 500 MT of cattle feed through West Assam Milk Union (WAMUL). It is suggested that NDDB-managed WAMUL utilise its supply network and engage with regional authorities to ensure efficient distribution of cattle feed.
Meenesh Shah, Chairman of NDDB, offered his support for everyone who had lost their lives, belongings, or means of subsistence. He was grateful for how quickly the Assam government, led by CM Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma, organised the rescue of those who had become stranded and provided desperately needed aid to the afflicted areas. He praised the opening of a doorway for enabling people to register livestock losses due to floods.
Chairman, NDDB said, “The impact of floods in Assam on both humans and livestock is beyond comprehension and a cause of great distress to so many of us even at this distance.” This contribution is symbolic of NDDB’s deep commitment to the unfortunate victims of the catastrophe.
