About this donation
On May 3rd, Cyclone Fani hit India’s coastline with winds gusting more than 190 km/h. The cyclone caused substantial destruction that uprooted trees, destroyed homes, and took several lives. Thankfully the region in India where our partners work were not adversely hit; however, our partners in Bangladesh were significantly affected by the storm.
In the wake of the storm, entire communities in Bangladesh are simply trying to survive. Those who work in agriculture are left without jobs, and their families still currently have hardly enough to live. Many houses are waterlogged and need substantial repair for the damage as a result of the storm. Also, many areas are below sea level, which has impacted the community’s supply of clean water, now tainted by salt water.
