Relief and Rehabilitation for Cyclone Yaas

Responding to the Cyclone Yass Victims of Sunderban during Pandemic

The survival of the Victims is in your hands. Act now! 

The Sundarban region on the southern coast has been hit with a severe cyclone Yaas. Yaas’s landfall coincided with the high tide on the afternoon of May 26, 2020, resulting in breaching of the embankment and widespread flooding. The water breached the bunds and flooded the lands, causing massive damage to property and agriculture. Sundarbans, the world’s largest active delta, is home to more than 5 million people (in India), many of whom are subsistence farmers and fisherfolks. Being an active NGO working on the ground in Sunderban MUKTI was the first NGO reaching very parts of Sunderban. Thousands of volunteers working on the ground. and they are putting their live in stake to protect the river bank. MUKTI volunteers are helping on the ground with –

  • Empty cement bag which will be used for rebuilding river embankments.
  • Water for drinking purpose
  • Tarpaulins and Mosquito Nets
  • Dry ration and food support
  • Clothes and utensils
  • Hygiene materials
  • Bleaching
  • Mask and Sanitizers

MUKTI started working intensively with farmers in the region in 2003 and thus helped the community during Cyclone Alia, Bulbul ad Amphan as well. We need your support to stand by the people of Sundarbans, who are already dealing with the loss of income due to the COVID 2nd wave lockdown.

Our Responses

Team of MUKTI in 9 Blocks (Kakdwip, Sagar, Namkhana, Patharpratima, Mathurapur I & II, Joynagar I & II, and Kultali) of South 24 Parganas, West Bengal have been active ever since the cyclone alert came. A team of 8000 Volunteers and field workers started to evacuate vulnerable people and station them at the nearby schools or flood relief centers. MUKTI has stocked up some dry foods in case of emergency and we are in constant touch with our team at ground level. We also have preliminary plans for replicating earlier plans of mitigating the immediate water and food shortage after the cyclone. More than 95% of the population in Sundarbans lost their home and belongings and now struggling for better survival.
