Trans women unite to help victims of flood


Trans women in India’s north-west have stepped in to help victims of the region’s devastating floods. that ruined 11 districts and took hundreds of lives. A group of trans women came together in the affected Malda and North Dinajpur districts to collect items for the relief packages they were going to distribute. The packages included food, water, napkins and water purifying tablets. ‘Collection from Malda district alone will be inadequate. Therefore, I contacted my associates in Kolkata and the transgender rights group, Samabhabana. They helped by collecting material from Kolkata and transporting them to Malda and North Dinajpur,’ trans activist Debi Acharya told the Hindustan Times. ‘We are distributing relief materials among the flood affected people in Malda and North Dinajpur districts where the situation is very bad,’ she told PTI. ‘Some have also helped with money. We have also got relief materials from Kolkata collected by transgender activists.’
