Travels

Another trip into the Sunderbans

This time I had the chance to go with the team to deliver food packages to a village affected by Aila. It went very well, the team of volunteers were great, and the people there so grateful for the food. More details to come, just a few pix for now, am waiting on some more from other cameras.
