CHARIS is currently in close discussion with Caritas India and Caritas Bangladesh to continuously assess the needs on the ground to render appropriate assistance.
CHARIS has also put up a cause (from 14 Jul 2022 to 15 Aug 2022) to support Caritas India and Caritas Bangladesh in their relief efforts.
Periodic updates will be reflected on the campaign page.
Since mid-May, heavy rainfalls that befell India and Bangladesh led to landslides and flash floods. With the conditions persisting throughout the month of June, the situation continued escalating. The floods have displaced many, and has also resulted in the loss of lives, destruction of livelihoods, and robbed people of access to basic necessities like food and clean water.
The impact is disproportionately brunt by those living in remote locations with little to no government support. Due to the risky terrains, most of the areas where they reside in are largely inaccessible. As of mid-June, the floods have affected millions across both India and Bangladesh.
Support and aid are needed in areas of shelter, sanitation, and safeguarding of vulnerable populations.
