Just ₹1,000 will help one vulnerable woman through this crisis
Measures to minimise loss before a natural disaster is one thing. But recovery and rehabilitation of communities affected post the event are as important. With the scale of destruction, officials are struggling to reach even basic amenities like potable water to areas such as Krushna Prasad where CYSD volunteers are clearing debris, providing drinking water and sanitation facilities and conducting health camps to avert the outbreak of diseases.
Beyond the immediate physical damage and loss of life, disasters can also cause long-term damage...[they] can change victim’s attitudes in ways that will potentially haunt individuals, communities and local economies for decades to come.
Fani blew away my home, leaving me helpless. But I will fight until my last breath to build my dream house again!
The post-cyclone recovery will be a daunting challenge to the administration in Odisha... In the aftermath of the 1999 super cyclone, the state relied on a number of community-based groups and volunteers to help rebuild communities.
CYSD have identified 300 women in the Krushna Prasad block in urgent need of health and hygiene kits containing basic sanitation items, antiseptics, medications for diarrhoea and rehydration, and Halogen tablets for safe drinking water. Volunteers will document the distribution of the kits and monitor their impact on the women. They will also help in the clearing of debris and waste disposal to prevent outbreaks of infectious diseases.
