When the people of West Bengal were fighting economic losses and flattening of the covid-19 curve, on 20 May 2020, the devastating amphan cyclone (135KMPH- 215 KMPH) broke the backbone of the vulnerable families.
The tropical cyclone amphan flattened their houses, uprooted trees and the saline water severely damaged paddy, vegetable cultivation and fruit orchards. First, they had no money to buy food materials and other household items, now they have no house to stay.
