The recent floods in West Bengal ravaged the common peoples lives for the utmost height .Many flood relief campaigns have so far been conducted through various individual peoples from all around the Indian sub continent.But the amount of people suffering still is more than the relief is being given to them.
We are a small group from Kolkata trying to give the needed victims what they really deserve.We know that our effort is small and the number of volunteers we have are pretty small but we know if we give our full efforts it will become so big that the victims will no longer be thinking if the relief would come or not.
