Cyclone - Relief Efforts

Raised Amount

$ 1765.00

Amount Need:

$ 6000

THE STORY:

**** We started fund raising to support for Cyclone Titli effected areas. However, we have received ground reports that the Government of Andhra Pradesh has acted timely and subsequent help will be duplicating efforts and finances. Hence, our Board has taken a decision to keep these funds aside to help victims / areas should a relief effort be required soon. Stay tuned for more updates. ****

Cyclone Titli (meaning butterfly) made landfall in Palasa and caused devastating damage to the States of Andhra Pradesh and Odisha. The cyclone caused widespread damage in Srikakulam and Vizayanagaram districts. With winds ranging between 150 - 165 kmph, the cyclone has thrown normal life out of gear impacting approximately 200 villages in State of Andhra Pradesh alone. Offical numbers as of now state that the cyclone has caused 7 deaths and the damage to infrastructure is mounting.

Horticulture crops have suffered extensive damage in Srikakulam District while paddy suffered in Vizayanagaram. Coconut plantations, banana and mango trees were uprooted distrupting the livelihood of many farmers. We have a team ready on the ground evaluating the needs. For now, we are looking to raise funds to help with daily needs - water, milk, bread, blankets etc.
