Heavy Flooding Leaves Millions Stranded

The Prophet (saw) said, 'The example of the believers in their affection, mercy and compassion for each other is that of a body. When one limb aches, the whole body reacts with sleeplessness and fever'. [Bukhari]

Extreme rainfall brought on by climate change has left part of North-East Bangladesh flooded as river banks overflow. The government with assistance from the military has evacuated roughly 100,000 people, however, nearly 4 million others are left stranded in the worst-hit areas.

The extreme flooding has claimed the lives of dozens of others. Officials have labeled this as the worst flooding crisis since 2004.

As part of our emergency response, our teams are on the ground delivering emergency parcels to survivors, including essential food and water purification tablets.

Amid our ongoing response, the situation has severely deteriorated. Heacy rains have inundated homes, submerged roads, suspended railway travel and left thousands of families stranded without food or electricity.
