(Verified non-profit organisation)

MEHDA has been working with the community of Pirang for the past 20 years. The organization’s work mainly concentrates in agriculture, education, and disaster relief.

MEHDA started working in Pirang village supporting women gardeners by providing seeds, barb wires, digging wells etc. They also supported different fishing community in the area by providing fishing nets.
