Five years after cyclone Sidr

Cyclone Sidr still remains fresh in people’s memory after five years it stuck. Some 4500 people died that fatal night. The victims still remember the destruction as clear as daylight. It is perhaps that burning memory that sends them scampering to the shelters now whenever there is a warning at the coastal areas. And those signals have become more frequent. Sharankhola is a small union of the southern Khulna division where 150 government and non-government organisations have been at work over the last five years. But the coastal people still lag far behind in terms of healthcare, education and food security.
