year started with a Global crisis due to the ongoing Nationwide lockdown caused by the raging pandemic COVID-19, ravaging much of the World. If this was not enough already, Super-cyclone Amphan made
landfall on 20th of May 2020, causing devastation in Kolkata, North
and South 24 Parganas. The most severe
effects of the cyclone were in South and North 24 Parganas Districts of West
Bengal. Many people in these two
districts are faced with homelessness, destitution and ill health. This cyclone has
been unprecedented and has destroyed their lives like no other. In fact socio-economically
the state will take minimum 5 years to recover from all the damage .
Sanved rose to the occasion and went beyond its routine work of providing awareness
on SRHR using Dance Movement Therapy and reached out to hundreds of adolescent girls
and their families severely affected by prolonged lockdown and Super Cyclone
Amphan. Many of them having lost their means of livelihood, were on the brink
of starvation after depleting their meagre savings.
Sanved proactively decided to organise funds from willing donors and support deeply
distressed families with basic rations of rice, pulse, oil, salt, potato, Soya, turmeric powder, soap, detergent and ofcourse
sanitary napkins which is a part of the
SRHR initiative to ensure sexual health of the adolescent girls. This was done in collaboration with various
NGOs. Masks were also provided for raising COVID-19 awareness.
