Mumbai is a resilient city but the last few months have crushed its undaunted spirit. The city was already ravaged by the devastating second wave of the pandemic when it was battered by cyclone Tauktae.
The daily wage earners were always struggling to bring food on the table due to the imposed Covid lockdown but now the cyclone has blown away the roof over their heads.
WMO North India Chapter provided relief aid and protective rain gear to 350 families which were impacted by the cyclone. 10 children who were orphaned by the pandemic and nature’s fury were taken under the organization’s wing. They will be provided education, food and shelter.
Over the years, the people of Mumbai have always stepped up to take care of their own. This year was no different. It is the people that epitomize the spirit of Mumbai that takes disaster in its stride and gets back to life everytime. Once again, the Mumbaikars have resurrected the undying spirit of maximum city.
