Cyclone Fani Relief Appeal

5th May 2019
Fani, a severe cyclone (Category 5), made a landfall at Puri coast in Odisha on Friday, 3rd May, 2019. Categorized as 5 cyclone (Severe Cyclone), the winds at a speed of 185-240 Km/hr hit the coastal areas of Odisha and same parts of Andhra Pradesh. Over 1.2 million people in the state have been evacuated from the coastal belt and relocated to safer places. The migrant labourers who moved from various parts of Odisha to Bhubaneshwar are the most affected by cyclone Fani. 
 
According to the State Emergency Operation Centre (SEOC), cyclone Fani death toll touches 64 with highest number of 39 deaths in Puri followed by Khurda (9), Cuttack (6), Mayurbhanj (4) and 3 each in Kendrapara and Jajpur districts.
 
Aide et Action has moved more than 2000 migrants, including 600+ children from 15 Brick Kiln sites to safer places like Government Schools and other safe public spaces.
