The people of Sundarbans struggle with day to day poverty, often not able to afford three meals per day. Our schemes with local partner organisations provide a life-line to relieve poverty of the poorest of the poor.
Sundarbans is a very poor place with poor soil, high salinity levels, poor water and sanitation, low food security and general deprivation.
These women are very happy to receive a poultry project which enables them to feed their families and sell some eggs in the market.
Thank you for making a difference with your donations.
Please Donate towards our initiatives in Sundarbans.
This community in Sundarbans India needs assistance as food supplies are very scarce. Many people have returned home from other regions due to Covid-19.
We provide relief for the poorest families - packs of food (rice, lentils, vegetables, mustard oil, potatoes, onions, eggs) and soap/sanitiser for hygiene for mainly widows and orphans. This is a very remote/cut-off island region which suffers the full force of category 5 cyclones.
Please donate - help us to provide livelihood training and self help groups. These programs make a real difference to families.
