The floods severely impacted mental health of the population. People affected by the floods suffered from severe psychological stress to mild emotional breakdown, it was addressed using community based care*.

Disasters grievously impact the mental well-being of the people affected. The fear and anxiety are the only two things known to men when everything around leaves you in an unnerving numbness. As a photographer who captures impact of disaster, viewing various emotions from the lens is a challenging enterprise. Sometimes those emotions will force you to ponder…What was going inside the head of this man? What were his thoughts in this exact moment?
