Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], July 24 (ANI/BusinessWire India): On May 20, 2020, Amphan Super Cyclone caused widespread damage in West Bengal specifically in the Sundarbans area. Winds at the speed of 160 to 170 kilometres per hour, tore through the region causing devastating damage to the life, property, and eco-system. Sundarbans, a vast mangrove forest area is a protected UNESCO world heritage site and also home to the poorest people in West Bengal.

SoulAce's NGO arm Inclusive India Foundation (IIF) has been providing 4 Relief Kits to each of 1,400 families for the victims of cyclone Amphan in the Sundarbans region as a part of CSR initiatives planned by United Breweries Limited (UBL).

"Amphan was the strongest cyclone witnessed in more than 100 years in West Bengal and caused large scale damage especially in Sunderbans. We at SoulAce and IIF have been responding through relief work based on community needs and being supported by United Breweries Limited," says Adarsh Kataruka, Head of SoulAce & Inclusive Indian Foundation (IIF).
