The triple whammy of Covid-19, Riots and Tropical Cyclone Amphan has crippled the State of West Bengal (See News Coverage). The smaller cities and rural areas are the most badly impacted.
The State of Orissa which had suffered badly due to the cyclone Fani in 2019 also finds itself at the center of yet another super storm. In both these states, many designated storm shelters are being used as Covid-19 quarantine centers which has compounded the problem further. If these centers are used as Amphan rescue centers, it will further increase the risk of the spread of the virus.
Goal of the Campaign
Lakhs of people, including Covid-19 volunteers are now rendered homeless thus badly impacting rescue operations. We at Team Dharma Kosh appeal to you to donate generously so that help reach where it is needed most. Funds generated will be used to purchase food, medicines, rescue materials and pay compensation to the impacted families.
This campaign is managed by team Dharma Kosh, a group of Dharmic volunteers. We have raised upwards of INR 3 crores for our grass root heroes in our campaigns listed below. Please follow @DharmaKosh and feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions. Some of our previous campaigns are listed below:
Cyclone victim families will be identified by the ground level volunteers and money will be transferred to their accounts directly.
