KMSS always do believe and try its level best to help poor, vulnerable and distressed population of our society by any means. As a part of our social as well as national responsibilities and particularly in response of Bangladesh Government’s urge of helping SIDOR, AILA, Bulbul and Amphan affected helpless people; KMSS took a brawny part on those calamities. KMSS participated in shape of giving shelter and distributing relief activities at SIDOR, AILA, Bulbul and Amphan affected coastal areas in the Southwest region of Khulna. KMSS specially gave emphasis in Bagerhat & Mongla where they are being involved in IGA. KMSS has distributed adequate quantity of relief items among genuine cyclone affected people as per their capability. Our field expertise identified real affected people in both areas with consultation & coordination with Local Government, make list and distributed relief items in presence of Local MP, UP Chairman, Members and local elites.

3) Rights – Working with the vulnerable to establish their rights over “Khas land”, water bodies. And also Working with the artisanal fisher folk and labourers of Mechanized fishing boats to secure rights
