We are only now estimating the damage that Cyclone Fani has done. Life is limping back to normal in the more urban parts of the state, but it is clear that there is much work to do. Electricity has recently been restored in the capital city of Bhuwaneshwar. Less central and urbanised parts of the state will face more challenges as people are out on the roads after having lost their homes and possessions.
Society for Children (SOCH) is a HelpYourNGO listed organization based in Orissa. They have rescued and resettled nearly 5,000 children so far.

They have shared the cost and quantity of the items below. Donations from this campaign will be given to the organisation to purchase and distribute these items to beneficiaries. They post regular updates of the work they have completed on their Facebook page.
