Here are some pictures of how the people, mostly IIMC mothers and children, in remote coastal areas coped with cyclone Yos. The cyclone which was building up its attack since 24 May 2021 has struck.
Thinking in advance, Dr. Sujit made arrangements of sheltering the most vulnerable people by turning all schools near the coastal areas into cyclone shelters. Dhaki School and Sub-Centre is one of the places used.
Here is a short note from Dr Sujit:
We are in Kolkata, passing through a COVID - Tsunami. It is hard period but fortunately the number of COVID infection is coming down. Unfortunately, however, Oceanic Cyclone 'Yos' has smashed and flown over our Coasts. This COVID and cyclone bilateral forceps attack has left our poor people completely confused and helpless.
We, IIMC volunteers, are doing our best to support the affected people. Thank you all for keeping in contact and extending your continuous support. It is very inspirational.
Our lockdown has been extended another 15 days till 15th June. Some IIMC members have been infected by COVID19. Our IIMC Office attendance is irregular. Email and internet support is not always working.
Hope situation will improve soon.
Greetings from all of us in our IIMC Mission.

Super Cyclone Amphan
In May 2020, Super Cyclone Amphan ravaged through IIMC Kolkata and parts of West Bengal adding to the hardship and miseries the people have been experiencing from the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown. IIMC's volunteer team have been working their best to support everyone with food packages, medical help, mental rehabilitation and social care.
Here is a letter from Dr. Sujit on how IIMC has been coping with the Pandemic Lockdown, the Amphan Cyclone & Super Monsoon Flood.
