In Sikkim & Orissa – people need your support !!

Dear Friends,

The situation is grim in both the states. Entire Sikkim is hit by one of the most devastating earthquakes in the history while more than half of Orissa is flooded with no attention by the national media. Millions of people have lost everything- from personal belongings to livelihood, land and crops!! Winters are already setting in as another disaster in this situation!!

GOONJ.. has already started its relief operations. Like previous disasters we are committed to work long term with a time tested strategy to work on gap areas. 4 trucks of material have already reached Orissa.
