South Asia Flooding

Our Response

Because of torrential monsoon rains, nearly 41 million people have been affected by flooding and landslides in Bangladesh, India and Nepal. At least 900 people are known to have died, and that number continues to rise. Hundreds of thousands of people across the region have been forced to flee their homes and are in immediate need of food and lifesaving supplies.

As World Relief has monitored this situation, it has become clear that thousands more could die in the upcoming weeks and months. So we are acting now—working tirelessly with our partners on the ground to meet the urgent needs of the vulnerable affected by the floods. We pray you’ll join us.

 

Through our participation in the Integral Alliance, World Relief has already begun supporting a local partner in the area, United Mission to Nepal (UMN). Together, we’re bringing food and supplies—such tarps, hygiene kits and cooking supplies—to the people of the Tarai plains, who are suffering more severe effects from the current flooding than any other natural disaster in their history.

The people of the Tarai are often overlooked and do not receive the help the need. Through UMN, we’ve already begun delivery of lifesaving supplies to over 6,000 families. But so many more families need assistance. With your help, we can bring it to them.

We have the opportunity to let the people of the Tarai region know that we see them and that we’re ready to help.

Please join us.
