Brazilian Red Cross Flood Response

Brazilian Red Cross Flood Response


The Brazilian Red Cross and its network are on the front lines of providing emergency relief and aid to all flood-impacted communities in the Brazilian states of Bahia and Minas Gerais. We are providing water, food, hygiene and first aid kits, and other emergency supplies. Many people affected by the flooding will depend on our emergency relief for days and weeks. Many have lost all their possessions and need access to basic supplies.

Since November 2021, devastating flooding caused by heavy rain storms and the bursting of dams has killed more than 20 people and has displaced more than 60,000 people in the Brazilian state of Bahia. In addition, more flooding in the state of Minas Gerais has killed at least 15 people and has displaced several thousand more people.


All donations to this project will support recovery and relief efforts by the Brazilian Red Cross. We provide emergency response including quick assignment of pre-trained personnel and pre-packaged material, relief materials, and donations and contributions in cash and in-kind to partner organizations.

Long-Term Impact

Organizations like the Brazilian Red Cross, deeply rooted in local communities and with strong national networks, are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like these floods.
