Bhubaneswar: Foundation for Sustainable Development and Climate Action (FSDCA) distributed some relief material in the Parala and Kurujanga villages of Kuanpada Panchayat and Bantali village in Bantaligram Panchayat under Gop block of Puri district last Sunday. Several houses of these two villages are completely damaged by the Fani cyclone and the current supply is yet to be restored. People have made makeshift arrangement to live.
The families of Narahari Nayak and Prafulla Nayak from Durgadaspur village in Pipili area of Puri district of Odisha are sleeping on the road in the open as their houses were blown off during cyclone Fani that hit the Odisha coast on May 3. Several other families of the village who had thatched houses met with similar fate. Most of them in the village belong to the scheduled caste communities and are also economically poor.
Dijabara Das of the village says, “We are sleeping on the road with families. Our daughters are going to school building to sleep. The other day a cobra was wandering near us and we had to kill it. There is every chance of a snake bite in present condition.”
