Massive floods have swept through Bangladesh, Nepal and India and thrown 16 million children into crisis. UNICEF is helping them survive and recover but we need your help and every day counts. Please don’t wait - help us reach more children today.
Intense monsoonal rains have inundated villages, claimed more than 1,200 lives and washed away everything children need to stay safe and healthy.
Families have lost their homes, children have lost their schools and entire communities have lost their only source of safe drinking water.
In Bangladesh alone, nearly 700,000 homes have been damaged or destroyed. Families are struggling to survive in crowded shelters, while flood waters have wiped out sanitation services and contaminated wells. These are ideal conditions for the spread of water-borne diseases.
More than 13,000 people have already fallen ill and we must act now to prevent a full-scale outbreak.
Your emergency donation can give children:
- Safe water, sanitation and hygiene supplies to stop the spread of disease.
- Access to emergency health care, medicine and immunisations.
- Sachets of therapeutic food - a peanut paste specially formulated with the micronutrients children need to survive malnutrition.
