Psychosocial Therapy in Barakuda, Bramhagiri.

The Cyclone "Fani" has resulted in minimum casualties, but delay in access to essential services and destruction of personal assets and means of livelihood has made a huge dent in people's mind. The most discrete and yet the most severe victims are the children. The calamity has brought onto them, an unforgiving memories and distress, a psychological stress and fear.
