PIC: CYCLONE FANI HAS DEVASTATED ODISHA.
On the ground one of the biggest concerns is safe drinking water for victims of Cyclone FANI as WATER BORNE DISEASES are the NO 1 issue after a cyclone. The short term approach is to give them bottled water which is too expensive & not sustainable. What NGO's need on the ground is a filter that can take care of microbial contamination. This campaign aims to provide a unique copper based water purifier called Tamras to NGO's on the ground in Odisha. The funds are being raised by Gramonnati, an NGO that is Pondicherry based. They are shipping the TamRas filters to the NGO Seva Bharathi which is already involved in relief operations in Odisha.
Fund 2500 INR and this will help a affected family get a 15L-copper-based water purifier that guarantees them safe drinking water.
While the goal of the campaign is INR 5L please continue funding even after the goal is reached as thousands of these filters are required in the field.
