Responding to emotional & psychological needs

Village fire

40 years old Hasantara was working as daily wage labourer in the field while her husband works as a migrant labourer. So she has to work in landlord’s field to run the family.

It was around 1:30 pm when she saw the big flame of fire from the village, so she ran to her village to keep her family's things out from their house. Sadly it was too late, everything were destroyed by the fire.

Seeing everything burned she took her younger child and attempted suicide by jumping into the neighbour’s house which was still burning. Unfortunately it was noticed by the neighbours and they stopped her all the way from doing so.

The reason behind this particular intention was that she had a big fear that her husband would come and blame her for the fire and beat her to dead because she did not take care of her house in his absence. Even though her neighbours initially succeeded in rescuing her from dying but she was still unsettled and reckless.

It was during that time when the CBM partners local staff came and visited her home and emotionally and psychologically supported her. It was not the fire per se but her husband whom she feared and so the team met her husband and was counselled and jointly counselled thereafter.

Today, they received all the assistance provided by CBM Partner and are starting their life with a new beginning.
