Uplift Bengal Campaign by Purbasha Cares:AMPHAN CRISIS

Help India and Bengal rise from the disaster of Cyclone Amphan. When disaster and crisis engulf India, Purbasha and the Diaspora always stood by the side of the most affected. On Wednesday, May 20, 2020 the city of Kolkata and southern part of West Bengal suffered widespread destruction and loss of life from once in a century type Cyclone “AMPHAN”. There was large scale loss of power, water and telecom; uprooting of thousands of trees, light poles, traffic signals and destruction of over 1.5 million homes. Over 13 million people (mostly in coastal areas) were uprooted and many lost everything. The Government, Utility companies, humanitarian relief agencies like Bharat Sevashram Sangha from both in and out of state, are working tirelessly to clear roads, restore electricity and water and provide temporary food and shelters to the victims. Many areas are still completely cut-off and in total darkness.We appeal to your compassion and solicit support from you all to help mitigate this enormous suffering of our brothers and sisters back home in India. Please Donate Here generously for the cause

We will send the funds to Bharat Sevashram Sangha directly in Kolkata who has already established networks in the affected areas and is highly experienced in such relief work.Let us make a difference and rise up, build and leave a mark!

Thank you for your support and donation in advance.

About Purbasha

Mission

Why Purbasha?

Purbasha is the welcoming island in Atlanta for the Bengali émigré from India. We are a group of young, passionate and motivated Bengalis who feel proud of our heritage and culture, and organize many cultural and fun activities all around the year. We are the reason for you to feel confident that your children would grow up appreciating every nuance of being a Bengali, when you are in Atlanta. We are one of the significant reasons for you to favorably consider relocating to Atlanta, when you are making such decisions. Our strengths lie in the clarity of our vision, the transparency in our processes and the commitments we promise together. Please feel free to talk to one of our members to know more and convince yourself that you have now reached the most vibrant group of Bengalis in USA.

Purbasha Mission

Provide a sense of belonging to our great heritage and culture while we are away from home. Organize activities that are traditional and representative of our culture. Inculcate a sense of affinity, value, pride, belongingness, commitment and responsibility - the hallmarks of our culture - in our children

Purbasha Vision

Be recognized as the outstanding Bengali organization in the US. Create a permanent abode to serve the dual purposes of (1) a center to host, facilitate and coordinate Bengali cultural and social activities, and (2) A foyer to provide a peek into a microcosm of what our heritage and culture aspire and endure.

Purbasha Goals

Plan, organize and present activities and get together that relate to the cultural, seasonal and traditional aspects of Bengali Heritage. Organize fun-filled activities and picnics to share and enjoy quality time together. Support charitable intentions of Purbasha and other organizations to help alleviate the problems of under-privileged members of our community both in and outside of the US.
