While the contributions made so far cannot be undermined, critics think the full government support promised the population is taking too long and getting limited.

Meanwhile, the psychological pain suffered by the survivors is still fresh in their memories, according to one of the victims.

The incident occurred on October 29th, 2019 leaving 42 deaths: 6 adult males, 10 adult women, 4 pregnant women, 11 boys, 15 girls and enormous material damage including bodies of domestic animals, according to official records.
