Seven regions of Bundelkhand area, i.e. Chitrakoot, Banda, Mahoba, Hamirpur, Jalaun, Jhansi and Lalitpur haven’t got rains since last four years. In 2007, no crops could be grown because of a hailstorm. These factors have resulted in a severe drought situation in the Bundelkhand area

There was no fodder for the cattle. Mahoba and Hamirpur areas were surveyed and the situation was discussed with the affected villagers. Saving cattle was identified as the immediate need

Gayatri Pariwar decided to save the cattle by providing fodder for it

On 28th January 2008 the chief representatives of all the 7 regions met with Respected Shri Virendra Tiwari, Shantikunj representative, at Gayatri Shaktipeeth Chitrakoot. The following actions were decided in this meeting

The most affected cities, i.e. Mahoba, Hamirpur and Banda were chosen for relief work

Based on the severity of the drought, clusters of 5 villages each were identified

In each of these clusters, survey ( 1 2 3 4 ) was done to find the number of animals per house

A camp (bhoosaa/chaaraa - fodder store) of Gayatri Pariwar was established in each of these clusters

5 kg fodder was arranged per animal per day

A fodder ration card ( front back ) was made for each family in order to ensure unbiased distribution of fodder

A health camp was organized with each camp and medicines were given

Deep Yagya or One Kundi Gayatri Yagya was done every Sunday to boost the morale of the affected people
