v   Society for Human Development  wrote a letter to National Relief Camp, suggesting them that all the aid from government sector, organizational set up, global help, from civil societies should be canalized to avoid the risk of duplication in helping. The process of help or to provide help should be systematic so that the people of far off villages could also get benefit from it.
