Cyclone Amphan Appeal

On May 20th Cyclone Amphan made landfall in West Bengal and was the most powerful cyclone to hit the region in decades leaving a trail of devastation in its path across the state with many communities reeling from its impact. The areas where we worked with our partner organisation were hit directly by the storm damaging the homes of many of our students and their families in the local community. These areas where we work are already some of the most marginalised communities, with most families living in basic dwellings and incomes had been badly affected by the nationwide lockdown due to Covid-19.

We immediately launched an emergency appeal to the cyclone and have had an amazing response from our many supporters who donated to our Cyclone Amphan Appeal. Our local partner PRDS then began food distributions to families impacted by the cyclone supplying them with essential food and household items. The homes that were most damaged in the local community were identified and grants have been arranged to help families repair and rebuild their homes to get back on their feet after Amphan.
