On May 25th, Hurricane Aila killed hundreds of people in coastal areas
of India and Bangladesh and uprooted thousands more from their homes.
Some of our brethren are still struggling to recover from the
devastating affects of the tropical cyclone. Prabasi is working

out to many affected people to provide them relief. Since Prabasi is a
non-profit organization registered in USA, your kind donation for
Hurricane Aila relief can be taken as a tax-deductible expense on your
