Bangladesh Floods - Emergency Appeal

From early August, monsoon rains have brought severe flooding to Bangladesh, parts of Nepal and India.

3.5–3.9 million people were affected by the heavy rains and rivers which have burst their banks, threatening their lives and safety.

  • Over 290,000 families were displaced, seeking refuge in makeshift shelters as their homes lie submerged.
  • Over 120 people died. The risk of infection and disease was high.
  • Railways and roads flooded and crops had been destroyed, leading to a breakdown in communication and local resources.
  • There was a high number of casualties and permanent and long-term infrastructure damage.
