During May this year, Cyclone Yaas left thousands of families homeless at Mandarmani, a seaside village in East Midnapore district of West Bengal. To alleviate their sufferings, RC Calcutta Mid South, RID 3291, conducted a relief camp for the cyclone-hit families in this village.
The club distributed grocery packs, each worth ₹500, containing 5kg rice, salt, mustard oil, potato, sugar, turmeric powder, red chili and other essentials to 100 families at this coastal village. In a similar manner, RC Calcutta Majestic joined hands with RC Ashtead, UK, RID 1145, to distribute cyclone relief to 50 families at Uttar Chandanpiri village in Namkhana tehsil under South 24 Parganas district. Four water purifiers were also donated on the occasion. DG Prabir Chatterjee, club’s IPP Bulbul Kundu and former treasurer Rakesh Sovan Ghose were present at the village. The club’s RCC at Namkhana helped the Rotarians to deliver the essential items to the beneficiaries.
