Summary

This is an URGENT APPEAL to support communities living near Sundarbans coastal areas, whose livelihoods are being impacted because of the Cyclone Amphan and COVID-19. They have little or no access to basic food supplies and other fundamental necessity. Your support will provide emergency foods and rehabilitation assistance to the affected families. These communities are key stakeholders in helping protect our natural environment and work closely with us to conserve ecosystem across Bangladesh.

Challenge

Sundarbans coastal people are facing a very tough situation. They had been already affected by loss of jobs, bad economy, and being unable to move around because of the Covid-19. On May 20, 2020, the cyclone "Amphan" hit the Sundarbans area, and 500+ people have lost their homes and have taken shelter in our center. They are not able to afford their food due to no way to work, and cyclone has made a pretty bad damage to the area. Their livelihood has come under question and they are worried.

Solution

Through this proposed project, support will be provided to the affected people to meet up their fundamental needs (food, cloth, safety kits etc) beside their rehabilitation (house repairing, seed for agriculture, fishing net and boat). With our support the affected people will settle down and again start their work towards livelihood. This project will not only provide the affected people with emergency support, but also help them to begin their life again with new energy and enthusiasm.

Long-Term Impact

This proposed project will help the affected people to return in their regular life, without getting depressed. As the coastal people are key stakeholders of nature conservation, this project will help us to conserve the nature together with local people. If they are not supported, antisocial activities may increase in society and massive destruction of natural resource may occur by the affected community. So, this project will establish peaceful co-existence between humans and nature.
