Devastation of Flooding

Heavy rainfall and severe flooding have devastated large parts of Bangladesh, impacting over 4 million people. Thousands of homes have been destroyed; villages and crops washed away; infrastructure damaged including power stations which had been submerged. Authorities reported nearly two dozen fatalities due to landslides and drownings. Deaths included three children who were hit by lightning while trying to help their parents save their crops in fields.

Struggling to Survive

Bangladesh was only just recovering from pre-monsoon floods earlier this year when it was hit by the latest floods caused by fresh rains and rivers bursting. Already struggling to maintain livelihoods and economic security, poor and vulnerable communities now face a desperate struggle just to get the basic necessities of life. With their properties and possessions washed away, they also face prospect of having few or no resources to rebuild their homes.

Rebuilding Lives

Islamic Help’s long-established team in Bangladesh is dedicated to serving as many of the affected as it can. With your support, they will be distributing food, shelter, clothing and medicines as well as helping repair and rebuild homes. As one of the humanitarian organisations that is recognised by the government and public authorities, we can help the hardest-hit with their immediate emergency needs and take longer term steps to rebuild their lives.
