Many other NGOs have worked in the affected area and interacted with the affected families, shared their moments of grief, rendered not only medical treatment but also required psychological counseling to live with the tragedy and instilled new hope in their lives.

 The NGOs/VAs have also approached the State Government with offers to construct houses for the Tsunami affected families that have lost their houses. Some of the agencies have also offered to construct hospitals, community halls, Anganwadis, internal roads etc.

Following the Tsunami attack, many NGOs and Voluntary Agencies have come forward and actively participated in rendering various types of services in the Disaster Zone as well as in the relief camps. They offered help to the district administration by contributing various materials to be distributed among the Tsunami affected families and also lent invaluable services to the Tsunami affected families directly.

The District Collector has taken coordinating meetings of all the NGOs so as to make the best use of the help rendered by the NGOs/VAs. A liaison officer was also appointed to coordinate the efforts of all the NGOs/VAs and a Revenue Subsidiary Office (RSO) has been opened in Alappad Panchayat to render necessary help to the NGOs/VAs.
