The extremely severe cyclonic storm severely affected 14 districts in Odisha comprising of 18,388 villages. More than 5 lakh houses were damaged affecting more than 1.5 crore population. 64 human casualties have been reported so far.

ActionAid is responding to the emergency on a high priority.

Emergency relief provided to more than 2,500 families

Thanks to generous contributions from supporters, ActionAid Association has been able to provide emergency relief items to more than 2,500 families in Bhubaneswar and Puri who were severely affected by the storm. Our relief items include dry food rations, mosquito nets, aqua tabs for disinfecting water, sleeping mats and bedsheets. Furthermore, we have distributed educational kits to 500 children of affected slum-dwellers in Bhubaneswar. We will soon be distributing hygiene kits as well.

ActionAid Association’s team and its allies have been working at the ground zero before Fani made landfall, supporting the state government during the evacuation of locals and spreading early warning measures with local communities.

Rehabilitation of affected population

We are currently undertaking an assessment to provide rehabilitation support to the affected families, especially with regard to repairing of houses and restoring their means of livelihood.

With the monsoon just around the corner, the biggest priority now is to rebuild the houses of families which have been severely damaged by the cyclone. The situation is expected to get worse as many more lives will be at risk unless swift action is taken.
