Bangladesh Floods July 13

Already flooded this year, people in the lowlands and swamp areas of Sunamganj are seeing fresh flooding again due to heavy rainfall and water from upstream. 183mm of rainfall has so far been recorded.

Floodwaters have entered the lowlands of Sunamganj, affecting livestock and damaging crops and roads.

Caravan of Mercy has already sent £60,000 in aid to the area and aims to send more. We have been distributing food, safe drinking water, and shelter equipment for flood-affected families.

Floods in Bangladesh

Caravan of Mercy have been performing humanitarian work in the area of Sunamganj, Bangladesh for some time now. Recently the location has suffered from flooding, gutting the homes of hundreds of poor families. The flooding has also reduced food supplies for them as well as their livestock.
