Itahar villagers raise funds to build much-needed bridge

According to villagers like Raghab Sarkar, Aysin Ali and Rebati Das, children from the villages there go to schools across the river, while people there have to cross the river if they want to visit the health centre and Anganwadi centres.

As such, we thought of collecting funds among ourselves and are providing villagers with a proper money receipt"
