South-Asia Flood Relief - Urgent Need

$75 $16,425
Raised Remaining


Monsoon rains have caused a humanitarian crisis affecting 28 million people in India, Bangladesh and Nepal. People need food and potable water to survive the worst of the inundation and rebuild.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

IDEX is working with our local partners in South Asia to provide emergency relief. In Bangladesh our partner SATU has reported at least 135 people have died, over 10 million are affected. Hospitals, roads, houses have all been washed away. In Bihar, India our partner Manavi reports that the Ganges has washed out crops and people are taking shelter on railway lines. Families in this region survive on their crops and farm animals. With these gone they are fast running out of food, clean water.

How will this project solve this problem?

IDEX will use the funds to buy rice, pulses (beans and peas) and water purification tablets to provide emergency food, salt, saline and clean water to 6000 families (30,000 people). Each person will receive two meals per day for five days.

Potential Long Term Impact

6000 families will have their immediate food and water needs met, providing greater immunity from disease that occurs in humanitarian crises and sustaining them while they evaluate and assess how to rebuild their lives.
