Cyclone Amphan Relief Efforts

Several thousand people have been left homeless as the last decade’s most powerful cyclone, Amphan, devastated India and Bangladesh this week. Cyclone Amphan killed at least 96 people, officials said after it swept in from the Bay of Bengal on Wednesday.
Bay Area Prabasi has quickly mobilized a team of volunteers partnering with the local clubs of the affected regions to help people through this.

In the first phase Bay Area Prabasi has supported the affected people in Hooghly region ( শ্রীরামপুর, শেওরাফুলি, বৈদ্যবাটি, চাঁপদানি,পিয়ারাপুর) by distributing Tarpaulins for makeshift shelters, or to cover leaking roofs and providing cooked food.
