The double impacts of Covid-19 and Amphan continue to compel the deprived and deeply impacted marginalised communities of coastal and riverine areas of wider Sunderbans lead a life of misery and struggle to restore back.

As a common practice the marginalised people of Sunderbans are still deprived of basic amenities like education, employment, health etc. and continue to live at the mercy of destiny. In such perspective Sabuj Sangha with firm determination and dedicated team continue to extend the health services for them through their established Rural Health Centre at remote Nandakumarpur village namely ‘Swarnalata Sabuj Seva Sadan’ and also with the outreach camps organized in the deeper hard to reach areas.

OPD clinics at ‘Swarnalata Sabuj Seva Sadan’ remained operational throughout and treatment including diagnostic services continued during October, November & December 2020 too. Trend of diseases observed was common cough & cold, fever, eye related problem, gastroenteritis, hypertension, ache in bone joints, complications due to high sugar, respiratory trouble, abdominal pain, skin infection etc. Also as mentioned emergency care were also given.

Collectively bringing back the smile once again- our post Amphan endeavors

Survey to measure the extent of damage
Survey to measure the extent of damage

It has been quite a long period we couldn’t came back to you and share our initiatives in restoring back the lives of Sunderbans Communities impacted to the edge by the hit made by the widely devastating cyclone- ‘Amphan’.

Though taken time but we are now excited with the progress we could make with your hearty supports from far and near. We along with the impacted communities collectively could restore back the basic requirements of safe drinking water by installing tube-wells, roads to ensure safe and smooth mobility and restore back the agri-based livelihood options that brought back the confidence and smile among the fortune beaten people from remote riverine and coastal Sunderbans in Patharpratima, Sagar and Mathurapur II blocks of South 24 Parganas district.

We also planted Sundari and alike trees through cash for work initiatives with support from community people. Thus individual families received support restoring Cultivations activities and build the base for livelihood options utilising the existing available natural resources – like ponds, pond embankment buffer lands, homestead lands etc.

In course of our activities we boosted the spirit of the agrarian communities impacted who faced severe criticalities after the cyclone ‘Amphan’. Thus came into surface the agri-based Pond based Integrated Farming – Pond based Fishing activities, utilising the pond embankments in the most justified way.

I am giving some of such references in the pictures ornamenting any place within homestead land and embankment areas. We are happy to share these photos which are the testimony of our efforts.

Friends we are overwhelmed with the support you rendered! Yet there is many more miles to go restore back the lives of the marginalised Sunderbans communities on a settled base vulnerable to the susceptibility of Nature’s whims

Together we restore back to lives once again.
