Donate to Cyclone Amphan Relief Response

Cyclone Amphan has caused great damage in rural and urban areas in both West Bengal and Odisha. Reports say 82 lives were lost, 80 in West Bengal and 2 in Odisha. Thatched houses, small shops, livestock, trees and crops have been ruined in the areas affected in both the States. As in all cases of disaster, it is families from vulnerable communities that have suffered the most, many of them have seen their homes and livelihoods destroyed.

With the danger of COVID19 still looming large, Cyclone Amphan has caused untold sufferings for the migrants who were returning home especially since rail and road traffic have been closed. We need to help victims of both these disasters. ActionAid is responding and we appeal to you to support our emergency response and help those who need it the most.
