Dhirendra Kumar of Vatiyaka, Ba, and Ripnesh Kumar of Varadoli, Ba, will receive $300 each for housing assistance tomorrow.
This will be provided by the Ba Farmers Carnival committee to help Mr Dhirendra’s four-member family and Mr Ripnesh’s family of eight.
They lost their homes in separate fires.
Committee secretary Narendra Padarath said the purpose of the initiative was to provide financial assistance to needy and disadvantaged people.
“The Carnival was held from September 5-12 and we raised $15,000, of which $600 will be set aside for these two families,” Mr Padarath said.
“Last year we also provided financial aid for medical assistance and helped some families who lost their homes to fires and educational assistance.”
