Bay Area Telugu Association is helping to raise funds to CM's Relief Fund for the Hud Hud cyclone devastation. BATA will be donating part of the proceeds from Deepavali Celebrations to the Hud Hud Cyclone relief efforts. We request Bay Area Telugu Community to donate generously to help the affected families in Vizag and surrounding areas. You can choose to donate through BATA, so that we can make a collective donation to the AP CM relief fund. Donor names will be listed on BATA.org.
According to the Andhra Pradesh state government, about 2.5 lakh people in 320 villages of 44 mandals (blocks) in the districts of Visakhapatnam, Vizianagaram, Srikakulam and East Godavari are affected by the devastation caused by Hud Hud Cyclone.
In the past Bay Area Telugu Association has responded to disasters by raising funds for immediate relief efforts, as well as long term rehabilitation. BATA has built a community Shelter in village affected by Tsunami of 2004.
