When Cyclone Fani hit India in May 2019, more than 1 million people had to be evacuated. Many homes were damaged or destroyed, and at least 72 people were killed. Alongside local partners and government, we've been coordinating relief and recovery efforts, helping communities impacted to receive the resources they need most.
Among those affected are 261 young women activists. We've been working with this group of young leaders for years across seven informal settlements of Bhubaneswar in Odisha, India, as they fight for their right to safety, health, and decent work. Now, they need our support. Join us in providing these activists with emergency resources - hygiene kits, mosquito nets, and sleeping mats - as they get back on their feet.
ActionAid's response is community-driven, women-led, and rights-based, which means your donation today invests in change that lasts. Donations beyond the scope of ActionAid's Cylone Fani response may be used for disaster recovery and resilience efforts where needed most.
