Three months after the disaster, almost all of the families had returned to their original homes or had been provided with new houses by the government.

The cyclone passed along the eastern coast of Madagascar, inflicting only minor damages. As of 2nd February, five people had died and 964 had been displaced.

This is not to remind us of the bad memories it brought, but the fulfillment it left in the heart of as many who responded for that matter. Tropical Depression Felleng, one of the biggest phenomena which affected mostly the Eastern part of our small island. It reminds us of the three main districts that were severely affected, time flies and we are hopeful that so far these people are back on their feet and living a fulfilling life.

We recall the many houses which were flooded with water, in every parts of their home their property ruined, items such as furniture, electrical appliances were destroyed. Practically a large number of families suffered loss including those who could recover none of their items, but we can boldly say that it had taken no life thus we are grateful for that.

During the early phase of this disaster the Red Cross Society of Seychelles has been involved actively in the recovery of affected population. The volunteers has helped the most vulnerable to evacuate their homes to temporary shelters and assisting with food supply and water. The first night of the early phase there was a demand for mattresses and the Red Cross raised a campaign whereby the people of Seychelles began giving generously. Gradually the Red Cross received larger amount of donations such as furnitures, kitchen utensils, mattresses clothes amongst many others. These were kept properly for distribution to the affected families. Other assistance were given according to different cases including psychosocial support.

The RCSS has seriously analyse its success and its flaws during this event and in general we can proudly say that the necessity was done, assistance were adequate and a difference was made in many lives. Until today feedbacks are still coming in and people are showing appreciation towards the act of humanitarian during this dreadful moment in time.

The headquarter was one which was very busy during those times, volunteers clocking in and out to ensure that response were happening at all times. The RCSS bus going to and fro on different sites to dispatch volunteers in accordance to diverse assistance needed. The younger and older one were giving their best in assisting the needy or any other duties which were being delivered by the society. Without forgetting those who remained overnight in case of further emergencies.
