Houses handed over to landslide affected people in Karwar, Karnataka
Return something to the society which has given us everything-Bhaiyaji Joshi

Sewa Bharati and the victims were not known to each other. But humanity and compassion of different donors who helped build the houses donating money and material brought Sewa Bharati and the displaced people together.

FIFTY houses were handed over to 50 families, who were displaced after a heavy landslide occurred on October 2, 2009 in Karwar, Karnataka. The keys of the houses were handed over to the victim families at a function held at Kadwad village on November 26. The houses have been built by Sewa Bharati for the families of Kadwar Zariwada village in Karwar Taluka.

Minister in Karnataka government Shri Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri inaugurated Madhav Nagar, the rehabilitation centre consisting of 50 houses that were constructed for the victims of landslide. The handing over of keys ceremony was held in the presence of Vamanashrama Swamiji of Haldipur Mutt and Bhaveshanand Swamiji of Ramakrishna Mutt.

Each house has been built in 30’x50´ site consisting of a kitchen, toilet, bathroom and a hall at a cost of Rs 1.65 lakh. Electricity has been provided by the HESCOM for which Rs 15 lakh had been paid by the district administration. The houses have been provided with potable water facility also. An asphalted road and drainage will also be built in the colony. A storm water drain has been built by the District Panchayat at the cost of Rs 18.50 lakh.

Handing over the keys RSS Sarkaryavah Shri Bhaiyaji Joshi described it a "small gesture towards the society which has given us everything". He said Sewa Bharati and the victims were not known to each other. But humanity and compassion of different donors who helped build the houses donating money and material brought Sewa Bharati and the displaced people together. He said one should not think of it as help to the victims but only as a responsibility to help those who are in trouble.

Shri Bhayaji Joshi also laid the foundation stone for a community hall that would be built at the centre. A shopping complex accommodating four shops will also be built in the colony in due course.

Addressing the gathering Shri Kageri appealed to the residents to keep the centre clean and green, so that the ecological balance could be maintained. He specified that the over exploitation of natural resources resulted in natural calamities. He announced the construction of a new bridge at the Kadwad stream at the cost of Rs 8 crores, which would be utilised from the Rs 100 crore package announced by the Chief Minister Shri BS Yeddyurappa during his recent visit to Karwar.

Presiding over the function, Uttar Kannada MP Shri Ananth Kumar Hegde affirmed that he would provide Rs 5 lakh to build the community hall at the centre. Uttar Kannada deputy commissioner Shri BN Krishnaiah; Taluk Panchayat president Shri Chandrahas Kohtharkar; Gram Panchayat president Shri Maruti Naik; Sewa Bharati trustee Shri Raghu Ram Ankolekar were also present on the occasion.
