KMR started in 2017 with the delivery of a single piece of plastic tarp to help a single street family. We continue to deliver these tarps which act as roofing and protection from the rain for the homeless and the few objects they own. Watch the first family we ever helped.

We provide a first aid kit complete with antiseptic liquid, bandages, band-aids, medical tape and sterilized gauze. These are essential to prevent small wounds, bites and scratches from infecting, thus prevent the escalation to disease and amputation. Watch the first aid kit video.

Every kit contains a family-sized mosquito-net for protection from malaria, dengue and other mosquito-related diseases. Apart from the preventive medical benefits, the mosquito net also provides an additional layer of comfort and security from the threats of the street.

In an attempt to combat illiteracy and provide street children with a better opportunity of becoming literate, we distribute a small waterproof book with basic Maths, English, Bengali, and Good Habits to every single child we find during our delivery route.

Cost of each relief kit, including delivery:


For the price of a small drink you can save an entire family from rain, malaria, dengue, wound infection, and illiteracy.

At Kolkata Monsoon Relief we conduct research regarding the pavement and slum dwellers of the city. Apart from registering each family, their size, GPS coordinates and other basic information, we are also getting to know their greatest problems in life, average income per day, occupation, education levels, and many other data points soon to be published.  This also allows us to follow-up each family we have helped and measure the durability and real impact of our intervention.
