Cyclone Fani which hit the coast of Odisha has left severe destruction in its wake. Houses, buildings, community property, electricity lines and telecommunication towers were severely damaged in over seven coastal districts of Odisha. ACC Limited, one of India’s leading producers of cement and ready-mix concrete, immediately stepped in with resources, manpower and logistical support to provide immediate on-ground relief and rehabilitation to assist people and local authorities in the worst affected cyclone-hit regions of Odisha.
Teams from ACC’s plants in Bargarh and Chaibasa consisting of electricians, plumbers, carpenters, fitters, welders, and helpers carrying tools such cutters, welding machines, compressors, and DG sets have set about repairing damaged houses to help people return home from the transit shelters.
ACC is donating truckloads of cement to help repair and rebuild damaged houses. Our masons and engineers are working round the clock to repair roofs, walls and floors of houses that were damaged or destroyed during the cyclone.
Temporary medical clinics are being set up to provide free treatment and medicines to prevent an outbreak of epidemics in these villages.
