Devastating News From MMS

We are heartbroken.

Super Cyclone Amphan hit The Mathieson Music School in Kolkata, India between Wednesday 20th May and Thursday 21st May 2020.

The massive storm caused extensive damage to the school’s electrical wiring, security cameras around the campus, and to our plantings & food gardens, including trees blown through our brick boundary wall. The net covering over an acre of the fish pond was destroyed.

Roofs were blown off the kitchen, dinning hall, offices and boys dormitory, which led to significant flooding and wind damage.

Food was saturated. Our music library–so recently reorganized by our staff–is sodden.

At the moment, we estimate there is about £25,000 ($30,000) worth of cyclone-related damage to the campus of the Mathieson Music School.

Fortunately, our whole staff is safe. As soon as it is safe to do so, our staff will begin traveling to the homes of our students to check on the children.

We hesitate to ask again. You have all been so generous already after our girls were forced to leave campus and throughout the global pandemic. But if you can donate any amount to help us recover from this latest blow, we will be forever grateful.

If you cannot afford a financial donation, please pray for the school, its staff, and its students, and for all people affected by this horrible storm.
