Dhaka, Bangladesh, Nov 13, 2019 / 23:01 pm
After the dissipation of Cyclone Bulbul, Catholic organizations have provided aid to the victims in Bangladesh, and assessed the immediate and long term needs of those recovering from the storm.
The cyclone made landfall in India's West Bengal state Nov. 9. It has heavily affected the coastal areas of Bangladesh and India, claiming at least 20 lives, according to the Guardian.
Authorities said more deaths would have occurred if it was not for the sake of increased evacuation efforts, the BBC reported.
Snigdha Chakraborty, Catholic Relief Services' manager for Bangladesh, commended the efforts but said victims are still in need of more aid.
