Cyclone Amphan

Help children and families affected by Cyclone Amphan

Cyclone Amphan has hit in the Bay of Bengal. It has threatened the lives of millions of children and their families in West Bengal and Odisha.

UNICEF is working together with the government and partners as part of the West Bengal Inter Agency Group.

The situation is grim and needs your urgent support.

 

UNICEF is preparing hygiene and dignity kits for children and families that have been impacted by the cyclone.

Every kit costs ₹1784 and contains basic items including soap, sanitary pads, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and water purification tablets. These items will help maintain personal hygiene and treat water to reduce the risk of infections.

UNICEF is supporting the response to the Cyclone in a number of ways and we will continue to update how our response evolves as assessments on the ground have been completed.

Community and PRIs are jointly working on Mousuni Island. We are actively supporting in the Sandeshkhali area of Sunderban, 24 Parganas (N).

The team worked to help ensure the safety of children and families. Before the cyclone hit, school buildings were made ready to shelter evacuees, many people safely reached and food was arranged.
