India Cyclone -
You may have heard on the news about the cyclone that recently devastated south-east India. Tamil Nadu, the region in which many of Wherever the Need’s projects are based, has been badly hit – the cyclone has devastated the lives of the people and communities with whom we work so closely.
Infrastructure, services and facilities are severely impaired and damaged; towns and villages are without electricity and clean water; many people have been left homeless.
