Cyclone relief made available food, shelter, access to safe water, and support for livelihood restoration

Community-level water filters provided safe water in villages where Cyclone Yaas submerged the regular drinking water sources. Families received household-level water filters, tarpaulins, dry ration, and clothes. Farm-related interventions helped replace the lost crops and mobilise farmers to adopt sustainable agricultural practices. Farmers got vegetable seeds for Rabi and Kharif seasons and seeds suitable for salinity-affected land. Farmers received training on biomass generation, production and use of organic manure, soil moisture and fertility management, establishing community seed banks, pest management and inter-cropping.
