Rehabilitation and reconstruction

Government efforts:
The Government of Gujarat has negotiated a loan of $500 million from the Asian Development Bank for the rehabilitation project that is estimated to cost $625 million. The main concerns of this project will be reconstruction of housing facilities and improvement of basic infrastructure. The government also approached NGOs and private organisations for assistance in rebuilding damaged villages where the damage sustained exceeded 70%. In most cases, the government also promised to bear 20-50% of the cost if the NGO agrees to build in keeping with prescribed government guidelines.

NGO efforts:
The concerted efforts of NGOs from across the country and the globe ensured that immediate relief was provided to the villagers, in the form of temporary housing, medical supplies, food and clothing. The main concern that followed was the repair and reconstruction of the villages to enable the villagers to return back to normal as soon as possible. The Pentagon Charitable Foundation is one such organisation that has collaborated with the Shrujan Trust, an NGO known for its commitment to the people of Kutch, to rehabilitate Bhadli Village, 45 km from Bhuj, which suffered 90% overall damage.
