South Asia Floods Appeal

Heavy monsoon rains have triggered severe flooding over huge areas in Nepal, India and Bangladesh.

Mor than 41 million people have been affected, with hundreds of thousands losing their homes, crops and livelihoods. Floods now cover or threaten an area equivalent in size to the whole of the UK.

Over 1,200 people have already died and many more are at risk from hunger and disease. Across the three countries, thousands of health facilities, roads and schools have been destroyed.

The Red Cross and Red Crescent are already distributing food, clean drinking water, blankets and essential supplies to thousands of people.

More rain is forecast and the situation could yet get worse. Please help us to do more now.
