    This fundraiser will benefit

    Flood Victims through local civil societies and group of individuals

    from Alipurduar, West Bengal Coochbehar

Bengal, Bihar, Assam and more states are vigorously affected by the flood. First, heavy rainfall and then opening various barrage gates of Bihar, West Bengal, Bhutan to release overflowing water has worsened the situation for all. Along with this, many small dams have been destroyed by the mighty force of water. Many places are completely cut out from all sorts of communication making it more difficult for people to reach to support. As the water is decreasing in some places and making them accessible to organizations and individuals we are in enormous need of dry food, temporary shelter homes, medicine and more.  Water borne diseases are spreading rapidly while one can hear people cry for some droplets of drinkable water.

I personally started sending money and materials in some places but as we are in need of more, I am starting this fundraiser. This one particularly is targeting Bengal flood as I have been able to establish connects with people and organizations working there for flood relief. The collected money will go to local welfare associations of Siliguri, Coochbehar, Alipur Duar. Bharat Sebasram Sangha, and some non-registered group of people both from North and South Bengal. My effort to reach out to organisations is still on. I shall keep all updated about the same.

In North Bengal, we are expected to have better reach to distant villages in next 5 to 7 days and then we shall need another wave of support from every nook and corner. Hence this effort this week. Hope to have support from friends and friends of friends and more.

Thanking you all in advance. This is my first effort with crowd funding website!Looking forward to all the support.
