West Bengal is an Indian state bordered by the Bay of Bengal. Every year, the region experiences heavy rainfalls and frequent floods. But, this year it is different! While we were in the midst of the war against COVID-19, Amphan, a tropical cyclone of massive stature made its landfall in parts of the Indian states of West Bengal and Odisha and the country of Bangladesh.A calamity of this magnitude was last witnessed in 1737, and it has now left millions of people homeless and stranded.
With wind speeds of 200 kmph, the fierce thunderstorms raged on for several hours causing widespread flooding and water-logging, destroying crops and infrastructure. Given the ongoing nationwide lock-down due to COVID-19, the rural and remote areas are the last to receive help!
We, the Indian students studying in Israel are stretching our hands towards the families who are in distress. Please help us by donating as much as you can in the relief fund for rehabilitation purposes in this critical time. The fund will go directly to the NGOs who are working closely in those areas for the provision of emergency care-packages for people who have faced immense losses incurred due to this rage of nature.
