Rang De’s field partners who are based in Orissa have made an appeal for financial support to aid their relief work. Many of the communities have been severely affected by the flood. Here is a blurb shared by one of our field partners about the situation.

“More than 65,000 mud-walled thatched houses have collapsed in the Kendrapara district. Particularly, the people of Rajkanika and Aul blocks of kendrapara district have been most affected. Within two weeks of second wave flood more than 31,000 mud-walled thatched houses have collapsed, 3021 hectors of cropped area submerged, 786 livestocks washed away with a loss of 47 human lives.

It is the need of the hour to reach out to the affected communities and stand in solidarity. A lot of voluntary effort and financial support is needed in this direction for restoration of their agriculture, land, livestocks, health, education and livelihoods of the flood affected communities in Kendrapara districts.

If you would like to contribute financially to the relief work, you can do so on this page.

Few of the pictures sent by our field partner has been uploaded on our facebook page.

Donations raised for flood relief work will be sent to our field partners working in the area for providing relief to the flood victims. Our field partners will share a fund utilisation report and the same will be shared with all donors.

After 11 years of operations, Rang De is now taking a massive leap forward with our brand new peer-to-peer lending platform rangde.in. Check it out.
