Yaas has left multiple people homeless in the coastal areas and one such is our very own Tapan Kaku (kaku is uncle in Bengali), who used to come to Kolkata twice a week to sell his home-made muri (puffed rice), badam (nuts) and various other items from Kulpi, a small village in South 24 Paraganas, West Bengal. He has his wife, his widow-daughter and her son at home.
Due to lock-down in West Bengal from May, he is unable to travel as the local trains have stopped running. Now, Yaas has left him homeless. He had a cow which has died due to the flood. Initially for 3-4 days they took shelter on the first floor of a government school. When the situation improved, he and the other villagers received 2 tarpaulins from the government to create a basic structure, till they get the required funds from the government. Tapan Kaku and others are now struggling to find proper food and water and also need funds to re-create their home.
Please come forward to help Tapan kaku build his home again.
Note : If we receive funds than expected, I promise to share the excess funds with the rest of the needy people there.
Please note that the image attached is not the appropriate one, since Tapan kaku does not have a smartphone and uses a basic Nokia phone.
