Thane Cyclone Relief Work

The Thane Cyclone has hit the coastal area of Cuddalore district. Eureka Child Foundation is working in a large number of villages in Cuddalore district and the Eureka coordinators from there called up to say they have been visiting various villages to assess the damage.

  1. Govt has set up relief camps in several main villages. But people in the interior hamlets still need basic relief support.
  2. Many huts in the interior villages have been totally destroyed. We will start supporting the re-building of the huts once the rain stops.
  3. There is a need for food and clothes supply. Our team is making local arrangement for food in some places. They have asked us to collect clothes as they will be needed in large numbers.
  4. Most roads are blocked and travel is currently not easy. Once Govt clears the roads, we can have volunteers visiting and helping with relief work.

Current Needs
  1. Clothes - children's clothes, sarees, blouse, shirt, pants and lots of blankets.
  2. Rice, dal and sugar bags (rest our field teams will arrange locally as transportation will be difficult).
  3. Other than this the people needs Lights in night, candles are much needed there.
