Tropical Cyclone Phailin - Help Now
Help Victims of Cyclone Phailin!
In October of 2013, the biggest storm to hit India in the last 14 years struck the states of Odisha and Andhra Pradesh. Cyclone Phailin was equivalent to a category 5 hurricane, with winds gusting to more than 125 mph, rampant flooding, and massive destruction to the homes and crops of those living in the area.
The government prepared for the storm by evacuating hundreds of thousands of people into storm-safe areas and shelters, saving an unprecedented number of lives. Long-time partner VSPCA also took part in storm preparation, bringing community animals out of the storm, and keeping them safe until it had passed.
But in the aftermath of the storm, both people and animals are returning to their villages, only to find they have lost their homes, food, and livelihood. Emergency assistance will be needed to get through the immediate crisis, and help with the effort to rebuild and recover in the long-term.
You can help. Your donation helps provide emergency aid and long-term recovery for both people and animals in the aftermath of Cyclone Phailin.
