Mukti on 24th August, 2021 organised “Salt Tolerant Paddy Seedling Support Program” at Mukti SAM (Sustainable Agricultural Movement) office in Mukti Gram under Nagendrapur GP, Mathurapur II block. The program started at 8 AM and continued till 12 noon. Mukti working committee members Mr. Bijoy Krishna Halder, Mr. Chitta Ranjan Halder, SAM project coordinator Mr. Sourav Kayal along with 140 farmers from Uttar Kankandighi, Dakshin Kankandighi, Purba Jata and Paschim Jata under Mathurapur II block attended the program.
Mukti is warming heartedly thankful to AID for the cooperation and support they have provided to the Yaas-affected farmers. Mukti is fortunate enough to get the chance to work with such a wonderful organization like AID.
Previous year after Amphan Mukti supported the farmers with paddy seeds but this year Mukti decided to support the farmers financially due to some reasons-
The money provided by Mukti will help the farmers to buy salt tolerant paddy seeds, rent land and to cultivate. The farmers appreciated this innovative effort of Mukti and thanked Mukti to be their side.
Mr. Sahabuddin Molla, one of the beneficiary farmers said “Due to the severe cyclone Yaas the saline water flooded our cultivated lands by breaching the river embankments. There is a huge loss of farmers and crops. Many farmers have been benefited from Mukti’s cooperation and Mukti has compensated many losses. Today, from the SAM office Mukti provided us monetary help so that we can cultivate salt-tolerant paddy. We are proud of Mukti. We wish for the prosperity of Mukti. We hope that Mukti will help us in the future too.”
Mukti thanks the farmer friends for relying on Mukti.
