On 20th May 2020 a devastating Super Cyclone struck Sunderban areas of west Bengal, completely disrupting livelihood of the people.
As a small endeavour for restoration of life &livelihood at Amphan affected Sundarban, UTTHAN has primarily identified 50 ponds of very poor family in Rupmari village, Hingalganj. Pumping out the saline water from the ponds-about 200 cottha, have already started. As the rain water would fill in the said ponds, fishlings will be given to the families to bring their livelihood into normalcy.
All well wishers are requested to be a part of this endeavour. 🙏
