Since the Monsoon season started in June, Bangladesh has been severely hit by constant rain. At its worst, more than a third of the land was submerged.
More than 70,000 households are completely destroyed, and 500,000 are partially damaged. This destruction has forced eight million people from their homes, while the same extreme weather phenomenon has affected large swathes of India, Nepal and Myanmar too.
A ShelterBox Response Team is on the ground, working with the Bangladesh Red Cross and Rotary to understand if we might be able to help those who have lost everything in the catastrophic flooding. Aid has just arrived the country, including tarpaulins, mosquito nets and solar lights to support 3,000 families.
