Update on Cyclone Fund

Dear donors,

Thank you for your generous support for the victims of Cyclone Sidr. The funds raised by this project were given to the project, Send Disaster Relief to Bangladesh Cyclone Victims, run by project partner IDEX.

Below is the text of their March 2008 update. You can also view the project at www.globalgiving.com/1904

Again thanks for your support!

March 2008 Update

Cyclone floodwaters submerged more than fifty percent of the country under water in 2007. The high amount of rain in Bangladesh caused sudden over flow of water across all rivers, and specifically, paddy lands. Transport among cities also stopped in many part of the country.

In addition, water submerged all residential areas, slums and roads around Chittagong and entered in to many parts of the city including OWDEB’s office, training room etc.

OWDEB evaluated the immediate needs of their group members and provided them with food staples such as, dry food, potatoes, rice, pulses, salt, and cooking oil.

IDEX received more details from our partners in Bangladesh. The situation in Bangladesh is still dire with many people needing urgent assistance.
