Eastern India and Bangladesh have seen unprecedented damage to livelihood, land, and life. In India, Super-cyclone Amphan is yet to be declared a national disaster. Moreover, the Sundarbans – a unique ecosystem that has been under threat in the last many years from undesirable economic development–is severely damaged in the face of super-cyclone Amphan. After the storm, an estimated more than 3900 families are without a roof in the Sundarban areas. For a little more than 500 INR a day we can provide Tarpaulin to homeless people to accommodate their makeshift accommodations.
Your financial support to the Amphan relief fund will allow us to provide temporary roofing for over several families in Sundarban areas.
The days to come will be a major challenge for West Bengal politically. But the fallout will be human lives. Especially farmers. The future of the agrarian economy for three districts in West Bengal looks bleak, given that salt-water has seeped into fertile land. Moreover, Bangladesh has established a different aid economy wherein local, regional, national, and international aid agencies launch a concerted effort towards doing something. West Bengal is sadly at a great disadvantage in this respect.
