Millions of people are being evacuated from their homes in India and Bangladesh due to Super Cyclone Amphan. People are being moved to shelters, but fears surrounding coronavirus are high.

On Wednesday 20 May, raging winds battered thousands of homes made with mud, tin and thatched roofs.

Millions are in urgent need of safe water, hygiene supplies, masks and sanitisers to prevent the spread of coronavirus. We need to act now.
