Kolkata, May 28 : Ramakrishna Math and Mission has extended its services to aid families affected by the Super Cyclonic Storm Amphan, which wreaked havoc on May 20.
Ramakrishna Mission is trying to deliver their humane service to at least 45,000 cyclone affected people in different districts. According to Tuhin Maharaj, looking after the relief operations undertaken in the cyclone ravaged areas, they are trying their best to reach the cyclone-affected people through their established network.
Fifteen branches of the mission are taking part in the relief activities in the South 24 Parganas, North 24 Parganas, East Medinipur, Howrah and Kolkata districts. Wherever it is possible, the Mission is providing cooked food and where cooked food cannot be delivered they are distributing dry rations.
