RAHI plans to provide supplies in the region over the next three months.
After cyclone 'Fani' claimed several lives and destroyed considerable property on Odisha’s Eastern coast, an NGO is supplying packaged food to areas where relief support has not reached from other sources.

Rise Against Hunger India (RAHI), an international hunger relief organization, chose the three most affected villages of in Niajpur and Palanka panchayats of Brahmagiri and provided relief to around 500 families in the region. It reached the affected regions within 48 hours of the cyclone striking them. Meals, kits containing essential commodities and hygiene supplies and tarpaulins for temporary roofing were supplied.

RAHI plans to provide supplies in the region over the next three months. It is also mobilizing other commodities like hygiene kits, toiletry, soaps, water containers, utensils, bed sheets, blankets, clothing and water purifiers.

Executive Director, RAHI, Dola Mohapatra said the damage caused is greater in the interior pockets of the state. “It goes to the credit of government agencies to organize mass evacuation of affected people well before time, thus preventing loss of lives. Thousands of families have lost their houses and assets; livelihoods are badly affected; many families are living in temporary houses – it will take massive efforts for affected people to rebuild their lives,” she said.
