One thought on “Loan assistance offered for flood damage

  • what if it wasn’t there fault
    for example
    if the core of engineers refuse to restore the river or certain agencies failed to do maintenance & directly caused flooding. sooo why should the victims pay anything when it could’ve been all avoided
