    This fundraiser will benefit

    families affected due to second wave COVID-19

    from Kolkata, West Bengal

The second wave of Covid19 in India has already affected millions of people, especially daily labourers.

On top of that, cyclones and floods have become a routine in West Bengal now, with two major cyclones Amphan and Yash, wreaking havoc on the state in the last two years.

        The worst affected areas are the Sunderbans, a Ramsar site(Wetland of International Importance) and the largest protected wetland in India. It also has a population of primarily daily labourers and small scale business people who were already in dire need of money due to Covid19 related lockdown before the cyclone "Yash" hit them on 26th May this year.

         "Yash"  has left thousands of them homeless and without access to even the most basic needs, like food, water and medicines. Several people have lost their livestock, agricultural fields and entire belongings. Sole earners of families have died, and children have been orphaned.

         We are a group of students, who are trying to do their bit and help the people in need, but for that, we need your assistance. At a critical juncture such as this, a small team of individual volunteers felt it was important to build mutual aid networks to supply essential requirements to families crushed under the economic burden that comes hand in hand with exorbitant medical bills. So please enable us to reach out to the people of Sunderbans with ration, essential supplies, medicines and monetary assistance. Your contribution will make a huge difference and help thousands of families in need.

UPDATE:

The Green Musketeers visited the Sunderbans on 19th and 20th June 2021. Essential commodities like everyday food, medicines, sanitary napkins and clean drinking water were provided. Our contributions were meant to provide short term relief and support to the affected people during the critical phase.
