CRS collection to support families affected by Cyclone Fani

As Cyclone Fani headed towards Eastern India and Bangladesh with sustained winds of 125 miles per hour, authorities evacuated over 11 million people ahead of time to prevent potential injury or loss of life.

It is expected that many will be displaced and in need of shelter and emergency assistance.

Rohingya refugees—already displaced and living in massive settlements in Bangladesh—now brace for the cyclone and the potential impacts of severe rains and flooding.
