Urgent Relief Appeal: Two Cyclones hit in 2 weeks
West Bengal & Coastal Maharashtra affected areas
Cyclone Amphan (West Bengal area) hit the region on May 21st forcing millions to evacuate across India and Bangladesh. This cyclone came at time where both India and Bangladesh struggled to bring the coronavirus outbreaks under control.
It was a disaster bigger than Covid-19, Mamata Banerjee, Chief Minister of the east Indian state of West Bengal.
Cyclone Nisarga (Coastal Mahrashtra) was the second cyclone to strike India in a little less than two weeks, recorded as the worst cyclone to hit the region in more than 70 years.
