Rural and coastal communities in West Bengal and Odisha have already been hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis and ensuing Government lockdown. Now another existential threat ravaged the region in the form of Cyclone Amphan – one of the strongest cyclones to hit the subcontinent in recent times. NEARLY 30 MILLION people are expected to have been affected by this cyclone. The impact of Amphan has been amplified due to the COVID-19 lockdown, with many families unable to evacuate in advance and crucial relief efforts delayed.
Asha for Education supports 36 projects, predominantly in rural areas, across West Bengal and Odisha. Our educational projects act as linchpins in the communities that they serve, and at this crucial time are local nodes for mobilizing emergency supplies and support.
Please help Asha support Amphan + COVID-19 relief and rehabilitation efforts for our projects in West Bengal and Odisha at this critical time. Your donation directly helps our projects provide relief and rehabilitation support to these local communities facing devastation.
