BRAC's rapid response

BRAC’s teams launched an immediate response in the worst-affected regions, providing lifesaving assistance to over 59,000 families whose entire villages are underwater. Families have been left without shelter or safe drinking water, and their livelihoods are in jeopardy. Our teams are prioritizing building resilience and helping families recover.

Crisis Update

Shudebi survived the flood, but has been left with nothing:

“By the time we were able to gather all our family members, we remembered the last rice we had. It was already submerged. For the last two days, we ate whatever we could salvage from that bag of rice, and we harvested rainwater from the slanted tin on our roof. Now … I don’t know where we’ll be getting rice or water from.”
