The Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission has decided to launch relief in areas ravaged by Cyclone Amphan.

Swami Suvirananda, the general secretary of the Math and Mission, said the order could not be a mute spectator to “this vast human tragedy” and has decided to join the operations responding to a call from chief minister Mamata Banerjee.

“...following the outbreak of coronavirus, our coffer is almost empty. But never mind, we shall apply our body, mind and soul together to see the smile in the face of our unfortunate sisters and brothers of Bengal,” Swami Suvirananda said in a message.

“We know funds will never be wanting for this great cause.”

Senior monks said the order had already started providing temporary shelter, cooked food and dry ration to the people affected by the storm and the operation would be scaled up.
