Amphan Relief

Super Cyclone Amphan became the strongest storm ever recorded in the Bay of Bengal on Monday night, after intensifying with sustained wind speeds of up to 270 kilometres per hour (165 miles per hours). 

The super cyclone ripped through Bengal and caused severe destruction to peoples homes, livelihoods, public property, farmlands and more. The government is still under the process of estimating the loss. 

Adding to the distress is the nationwide lockdown due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, there are many health protocols which need to be followed to ensure safety. In recent memory, there has been no time so devastating for Bengal!  

That's why we need to pool in resources as responsible citizens to create a network to make sure support is extended. We are working closely with local government bodies and the police in assessing the issues being faced in the locality.
