On 20 May 2020, Cyclone Amphan struck land across India's Odisha and West Bengal States and Bangladesh's Barisal Division. The storm is the first super cyclone to form in the Bay of Bengal since 1999.
Oxfam is on the ground, working with our partners to help communities recover from this devastating storm. Together we will respond to the impact of the cyclone in both India and Bangladesh.
