Victims of the flood have lost everything and are now in danger of starvation and water-related disease. If we don't help, militant factions may step in and win people over.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The flood of July 27 washed out millions of people's home, belongings, and means of survival.1600 people have already died; millions more are at risk of water-related disease. The fact that the quality of much infrastructure was poor to begin with makes the effect worse, and now much of this infrastructure is completely destroyed, making relief work harder. The absence of aid leaves people vulnerable to exploitation by militant groups who claim they can help.
How will this project solve this problem?
We will provide food, water, shelter and clothing to those without these things because of the flood, thus allowing them to survive.
Potential Long Term Impact
If enough aid does not arrive from governments and humanitarian groups, militant groups will be able to provide aid, be seen as rescuers, and gain more power. By providing aid through real humanitarian groups we can prevent this.
