Forest dept burnt our houses, Don't want to give us any identity, Pls help...

My name is Savita Devi. I am calling from Lakhimpur Kheri district in Uttar Pradesh. Forest department has burnt our houses. We are a community o fmore than 100 people.They do not want us to have any identity. After long struggle we have now got our names included in voter list. Because our name is not there in any govt list so panchayat does not give us any facilities. School is far off. So our children can not go to school. Please help us. For more please contact Savita Ji at 08004070965
