Story

INTRODUCTION & OVERVIEW
The unprecedent scale of destruction that came with the Cyclone Fani has left the coastal districts of Odisha in a state of devastation. The wind velocity was more than 200 kmph. The eye of the storm was around Puri City and hit the city about 08.10 am in the morning of 3rd May 2019. Subsequently the cyclone moved North East affecting Bhubaneswar, Khorda, Puri, Cuttack, Jagatsinghpur, Kendrapada, parts of Jajpur.
All the Kutchha houses are damaged in rural and slum areas beyond repair. The people have lost their livelihood, agriculture implements and khariff crops are completely damaged. The fisher men have lost their fishing nets as well as boats. They are in serious distress and in need of basic necessities like food, drinking water, medicine, shelter (tarpaulin) and livelihood.
While a lot of Social Impact Organizations and volunteers rose to the cause of providing immediate relief materials to the affected hundreds along the Eastern Coast, Sewa International did not stop there.
Through its R.E.L.I.E.F and R.E.H.A.B. approach, Sewa has undertaken the task of rebuilding the entire community and rehabilitating the people so that they can be brought back to the normal state of living.
To help us in this endeavour we appeal to the humanity of the world to extend help in as much manner is possible. Let us all join hands so that we can let our brothers and sisters in Odisha know that they are not alone in this struggle to rebuild their lives.
LET US ALL RISE TO THE CAUSE OF REBUILDING ODISHA
