Natural Disaster Relief
Families living in poverty are extremely vulnerable to changing weather conditions and East India is hammered by cyclones and floods every year between the months of June - September, killing hundreds or thousands annually and displacing tens or hundreds of thousands of families. The most vulnerable people groups are those living in the nearby low lying areas of the Ganges delta.
Stepping Stones teams can assist villages effected by natural disaster by providing them with tarpaulin as a temporary shelter, blankets, clothing, food, water and medicines as and when they are needed. During such crisis we put out an appeal to our supporters who can then make a donation towards our relief efforts if they wish.
