On 20 May, Super Cyclone Amphan hit some of the poorest areas of India and Bangladesh.

Please consider donating to Christian Aid's appeal.

Without urgent, effective action, lives could be lost on a huge scale. 

The storm wreaked havoc, with winds of up to 185 km/h along with heavy rain and sea surges. It destroyed houses and crops, and cut power supplies to cities and towns.

An estimated 500,000 families could have lost their homes and over 3 million people across the two countries are living in collective centres.

These are places where people were already struggling to contain the coronavirus pandemic. There is a lack of clean water, health care and resilient housing.

Now, families are dealing with a double threat. They are trying to survive after the storm has taken their homes and livelihoods – as well as avoid the potential spread of coronavirus in crowded evacuation centres where social distancing and regular handwashing will be extremely difficult.

Families will urgently need shelter to maintain social distancing and be less exposed to the risks of coronavirus.

Act of Spiritual Communion

Thanks be to you, Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits you have given me,
for all the pains and insults you have borne for me.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,
I ask you to come spiritually into my heart.
O most merciful redeemer, friend and brother,
may I know you more clearly,
love you more dearly, and follow you more nearly,
day by day.  Amen.
