Standing by Kutch in the wake of Biparjoy

1 min read

Cyclone Biparjoy caused widespread displacement and unrest in Gujarat’s Kutch district, damaging crops, homes, and infrastructure. In the coastal town of Mundra, the Adani Foundation launched comprehensive disaster management and relief efforts in 22 affected villages. To contribute to the preparedness, more than 4,500+ people were transferred to shelter houses. Stand-by ambulances, food packets and PPE kits were arranged. 1,200 fisherfolk families were provided ration kits in the coastal villages where they had migrated. The Adani Foundation team established medical camps and deployed excavators in coordination with the District Administration to clear the access routes. The next steps are to strengthen cattle care and fisherfolk settlements and revive and preserve the uprooted date palm trees.
