In view of the unhygienic state of the slum, efforts have been made in collaboration with leaders (Pragati Sathis) to clean up the area. In this regard, support was provided by a group of volunteers who had come from other districts to assist those devastated by the cyclone. These volunteers were mainly from Jagruti, Nehru Yuva Kendra and the Gyanadeep Foundation, who had the necessary cutters and skills to cut and remove large, broken trees. In many slums, the church not only worked hand in hand with these volunteers and project staff, but also cooked food for these volunteers. Up to now, cleanliness rides have been carried out in eight slums of Bhubaneswar.
Clean drinking water was provided by linking related support from Tata Trusts or BMC tankers. Four slums were supported. The peer leaders (Pragati Sathis) are youth leaders trained by the Socially Smart Project who, in collaboration with BSCL and UNFPA, teach, train and teach youth from slums of the Bhubaneswar Town Center District and beyond.
