Massive floods have swept through Bangladesh, Nepal, and India and thrown five 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 these children today.
Intense monsoonal rains have inundated villages, claimed the lives of 93 children, 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.
Three countries have been severely affected:
- More than 10 million affected and almost 2,000 schools have been damaged by floodwaters. Many communities are still reeling from recent extreme heat and water shortages.
- More than 50,000 people have been forced to leave their homes and 88 have lost their lives. Houses are severely damaged in central and eastern Nepal.
UNICEF staff are on the forefront of the emergency response.
- Monsoonal rains continue to inundate most of the country and more than two million are affected. An estimated 367,341 homes have been destroyed and intense flooding in the Rohingya refugee camps continues to threaten the lives of almost one million Rohingya living in Cox's Baazar.
Our teams in the field are supplying water, health, and sanitation needs, have launched child protection programs, and have dispatched thousands of tarpaulins to keep families safe from the immediate effects of the storm.
