Aid for communities affected by severe monsoon flooding in South Asia

Aid for communities affected by severe monsoon flooding in South Asia

Thousands have been forced from their homes as heavy monsoon rains triggered widespread floods across South Asia a fortnight ago. Amongst the areas affected are northern Bangladesh and the State of Bihar in eastern India where Islamic Relief is responding.

Our teams on the ground in Bangladesh and India have identified specific needs and are now delivering vital aid worth over £100,000.The aid supplies have been funded in part through a grant of just over £100,000 from Islamic Relief UK, Zakat money which has been generously donated by UK donors.

“In Bangladesh and India, we are already working in the affected areas. In many places, because we have a longstanding relationship with local organisations on the ground we are ready to respond immediately to the needs of the communities,“ says Tufail Hussain, Islamic Relief UK’s Deputy Director.

“This emergency work often doesn’t hit the headlines but is helping to save thousands of lives and get communities back on their feet.”

Please continue to support this work by donating to our Global Emergencies Fund which provides a lifeline of communities in immediate need post-disaster. Thanks to your donations towards the Global Emergencies Fund, we are in a position to respond immediately and without having an appeal to gather funds.
