Cyclonic Storm Titli made landfall in Odisha, India, on 11 October, bringing extensive flooding and landslide in its wake. The cyclone affected

273,425 hectares of cultivated land killing animals and people; outbreak of disease soon hit cattle and working animals across the region.

SPANA acted quickly. Working through our trusted local partner, we provided emergency feed, vitamin supplement programmes, clean water and shelters for livestock and working animals in the remote Ganjam district of Odisha state.

To reach all parts of this largely agricultural district, a mobile emergency team took to the road, treating sick and injured animals while vaccinating against infectious diseases, such as foot-and-mouth. Communities were also provided with essential veterinary supplies.

Over 7,200 vulnerable animals, including donkeys, goats and cattle, benefitted from SPANA’s emergency programme.
