Story

Imagine how difficult life has become for the families in Sunderbans, who hardly recovered from the devastating cyclone Amphan and in no time the second wave of covid-19 pandemic started taking it's toll on them.

SWAPNOPURON WELFARE SOCIETY which translates as “dream come true”, was started by a group of like minded people in 2012 from then on they have always tried and taken initiative to reach out to the people of Sunderbans. In these hard times as well, SWS is looking forward to start a COVID-19 Ration kit Distribution Drive for the families in 'Hingalganj block'; Sunderbans. The cost of a single ration kit is Rs.500 only, which can feed a family for the next 30 days. Below are the listed items that will be provided in the Ration Kit.
5kg- Rice
400 grams - Dal
1 litre – Mustard Oil
