Every year, low-lying areas of India witness heavy spell of monsoon rains. This is followed by devastating floods and landslides. For thousands of people, this means a loss of shelter, land and livelihood. This year has been no different.

Cyclone Fani has passed but left behind a trail of devastation and distress in the life of millions!! With a commendable job of state government, NDRF and many other agencies, effective evacuation has certainly been able to minimize the life loss in a big way.

In the last 2 decades of Goonj’s work.. we have seen thousands of people walk into homes where there is nothing left or fields, with all crop finished. All of us saw the intensity of the winds severely damaging even concrete buildings..It’s impact on millions of kachcha houses- from essential belonging to livestock can be anyone’s guess.

I have said it earlier as well that in some disasters unfortunately the impact is measured by the number of deaths and not by the distress of the living.

We are there to do our bit and need you too.. to make sure that people get the basic relief- from food, utensils, tarpaulins to school material, while struggling back to life. Then we stand with them for long term rehabilitation too.

Every penny, Every effort, Every Contribution Matters.. not only for urgent survival but also to save people from getting into huge debt traps when buy essentials !

Do write back to mail@goonj.org for any queries.

–Anshu Gupta (Founder, Goonj)

We certainly need you too.. more people, resources, material and money.
