HiCuP, a unique initiative by Ms. Seeba Bhojani, supported by Jnana Prabodhini Pune, and Maîtree Organization, Kochi, has been rolled out with the vision of facilitating long-term psychological rehabilitation of people affected by floods.
For the purpose, a team of 25 volunteers has been trained to provide listening support on the field over a period of one month for short-term and assess psychological needs of the community to provide support in the long run.
As we know Kerala has been affected by this kind of floods almost a century; hence being the most difficult one to deal with. The people have not only been physically affected but also strongly being impacted at a psychological level, leading to an increasing number of suicides.
Therefore, there is a strong need to provide psychosocial support in addition to physical and material help.
