On the 6th day of the disaster, out of the 4 committees sent for damage assessment, only 1 committee for the Vatakari area has provided their one pager report. The data provided is not enough for planning emergency response activities.
BEEJ does not have any emergency response fund but it has deputed 3 member team with two vehicles and has got the capacity to carry out the detailed damage assessment from own resources but as being a local NGO its damage assessment report will not be given the credibility as of some UN agency or International NGO.
