FFLV’s initiative to distribute a large number of monthly rations to numerous families wouldn’t be possible without the dedicated team. We appreciate the efforts and cooperation of our ration distribution team: Field workers, bullock cart drivers, kitchen staff, and watchmen who have worked so hard every day by putting their own lives at risk.
