In the early hours of 16th November 2018 Cyclone Gaja has made a landfall, with torrential rains and winds of up to 120 kmph, left a trail of destruction in the coastal areas of Nagapattinam district of Tamil Nadu. The cyclone has affected lakhs of people, disrupted communications, leveled hundreds of homes and destroyed coconut trees and paddy crops.
We are on the ground. As per the initial assessment, there is a dire need for food, water, dry ration, sleeping mat, bed sheets and Tarpaulin sheets.
