Recurring Flash Floods Overwhelm Northeast Bangladesh

Back in mid-May, the northern part of Bangladesh witnessed its worst flood in 18 years. Less than a month later, another flood has hit the country. Major rivers are reaching dangerous levels. Homes and livelihoods have been destroyed. Schools are being used as flood shelters. And travel has come to a halt, making it difficult for emergency responders. An estimated 4.3 million people have been affected, triggering a humanitarian crisis.


Islamic Relief first responded to the emergency in May, and is continuing its efforts through emergency rescue operations, the provision of food aid including fodder for livestock and non-essential food items such as hygiene kits, and cash assistance.


As we continue to monitor the situation on the ground, we hope to move towards a long-term development response including shelter reconstruction and livelihood support.

Focus on Bangladesh

Agriculture plays an important role in the livelihoods of the people in Bangladesh. Monsoon season brings heavy rainfall and strong winds, increasing the risk of floods and landslides and exacerbating poverty and economic insecurity. The Rohingya crisis in the neighboring country of Myanmar has also greatly affected the country. Bangladesh is home to what has quickly become the largest and most densely populated refugee camp in the world.


While the government has been actively working to reduce poverty, there is still work to be done. The people of Bangladesh need help from donors like you.
