On May 3, 2019, Tropical Cyclone Fani ravaged coastal Odisha, destroying homes, trees, schools, colleges, airports etc. Due to well-preparedness by government, loss to human lives was minimal but thousands of people, especially in the lower income level need support from all around the world to get back to their lives.
IASF, a California based non-profit organization, solely run by volunteers and with minimal administrative expenses is raising funds to help with relief & rehabilitation work and helping the most needy at this difficult times. IASF has been doing projects in Odisha since 1999 (last super cyclone). Please visit our website www.iasf.net for details.
We will soon publish details of how the raised funds will be used. The communication network in Odisha is down and we hope to get a clearer picture of the damage and effort needed after couple of days. Our #1 intention is to raise funds that can go directly to the needy 100%
Please note that GoFundMe charges around 2.9%+$0.30 transaction fees. IASF will disburse 100% from the proceeds to the agencies with clean track record working at ground level. Details will be published here as we learn more. If you want to donate by check, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you details.
Thank you for your patience and your contribution is well appreciated.
