Donation Drive – Cyclone Fani
On May 3rd, 2019, the eastern coast of India was hit by the cyclonic storm – Fani. It was the most intense storm to hit Odisha in the last 20 years, and that’s saying a lot since Odisha is often called ‘Nation’s capital of Disaster’. It caused massive destruction with 64 people losing their lives. The coastal states are no stranger to natural calamities and while we can do little to prevent the loss of life and property, we can definitely help the people stuck rebuilding their lives in the aftermath. On that account, the Rotaract club of Lekarz set up donation boxes all over the college, hospital and hostel campus, calling on students to donate whatever amount of money they can.
We saw an amazing response from each member of this campus and all our prayers were with the people suffering. Our hearts were filled with gratitude and we were grateful for what we have.Once collection was complete, all proceeds were transferred to Odisha Chief Minister’s relief funds.
