Village got flooded by Cyclone Amphan
Village got flooded by Cyclone Amphan

Bangladesh is a small south Asian disaster vulnerable country. There is at least one or more than one disaster occurs here in Bangladesh since last few years. Cyclone Amphan is such a devastating cyclone that destroyed the coastline of Bangladesh. This was the first ever super cyclone in 20th century in Bangladesh. Cyclone Amphan hit Sundarbans coastal region in the midst of global crisis called COVID 19. Due to Coronavirus, economy of Bangladesh has been broken, thousands of people have lost their jobs and hand to mouth people started living fasting or having very small quantity of food. In such a situation, super cyclone Amphan has broken coastal hope. In this duel crisis affected communities are at a loss. Cyclone ''Amphan'' passed the Bangladeshi coastline by the midnight on 20th May, 2020 with a wind speed of around 160 to 180kph rising to 200kph within 80km of its centre. Thousands hectors of fish and crops farms are inundated by the saline water due to damaged of the coastal embankments, agricultural field destroyed, trees uprooted and houses collapsed. 

These Sundarbans coastal communities are key stakeholders in helping protect our natural environment and work closely with us to conserve our Sundarbans mangrove ecosystem in Bangladesh. If they are not safe, it will be impossible for us to conserve the nature and ecosystem. So, their rehabilitation is a must.

This is why Bangladesh Environment and Development Society (BEDS) is trying to raise fund for the affected Sundarbans coastal people of Bangladesh. Target of the project is 64,320 UDS and so far 680 have been raised from 9 respectable donations. We want to raise the entire target fund as soon as possible and support the affected community. 

This is an absolute prayer to the donors to stay beside the Cyclone affected and COVID 19 vulnerable community and assist them to return to their general life.

Super Cyclone ''Amphan'' started crossing the Bangladesh coast around 5pm on Wednesday packing a wind speed of around 160 to 180kph rising to 200kph within 80km of its centre. It passed the Bangladeshi coastline by the midnight. Many low-lying areas were inundated, embankments collapsed, trees uprooted, fish and agricultural crops destoyed and houses damaged by this super cyclonic event in the coastal districts of Bangladesh. Mainly Sundarbans coastal region of Bangladesh has major damages due to this cyclonic event.

 

BEDS (Bangladesh Environment and Development Society) has tried to prepare and motivate local villagers (keep their precious things/treasure in secured place, arrange dry food, take shelter in our Cyclone Shelter before disaster) to face Cyclone Amphan two days prior from Amphan to hit Bangladeshi coast. On May 20, 2020, more than 600 people took shelter in the Cyclone shelter and training center of BEDS. BEDS staffs and its volunteers handled the situation efficiently. Local government and BEDS together arranged food and water for the sheltered people. All the sheltered people remained safe.

Bangladesh is a disaster prone south Asian country. This country is venerable to natural disasters due to its geographic location. Sundarbans coastal region is the front line of global climate change. Natural disasters occur every now and then here and people have to fight for their life and livelihoods. The common natural disasters of the country are tropical cyclone, flood, drought, thunder, erratic rainfall etc.

Every year, there is natural disaster. But Sundarbans coastal communities are very poor. So, during after disaster period, they have to suffer a lot. These marginalized people usually don’t have enough food and other emergency facilities during disaster time. Bangladesh Environment and development Society (BEDS) has established a multi purposed useable Cyclone shelter in the Sundarbans coastal region of Bangladesh for the safety of the coastal villagers. This shelter is situated in Mathurapur village, under Munshigonj union of Satkhira district of Bangladesh. BEDS also established an emergency fund for the villagers. We opened a bank account for that fund. But at the time of last two massive natural disasters (Cyclone Fani and Bulbul), we spent the entire fund (money) for their emergency support especially for food. So, now we are considering raising fund for that emergency fund that has been already established.

Now BEDS is trying to raise fund for disaster victimized people of Bangladesh through GlobalGiving platform. Total target for the grant is 100,000 $.

So, we are requesting to the global donors to help us so that we can help the underprivileged coastal communities of Bangladesh.

Bangladesh is a disaster prone south Asian country. This country is venerable to natural disasters due to its geographic location. Natural disasters occur every now and then here and people have to fight for their life and livelihoods. The common natural disasters of the country are tropical cyclone, flood, drought, thunder, erratic rainfall etc. In the recent past National Disaster Response Coordination Center (NDRCC) declared that 21 districts of Bangladesh are most affected due to week-long monsoon rains in the upstream regions and throughout the country. Most of the affected families lost their properties like home, crops etc. Over 60,000 families in low-lying areas are marooned in their home or community shelters. The flood affected people became helpless. They have no permanent resident to live, they have no food and water to eat and drink. They have become the worst sufferer among the victims. At this moment, we need emergency food, drinking water etc. to support them. Bangladesh Environment and Development Society (BEDS) is a development organization want to stay beside the flood victims through raising funds for them.

The project will assist flood affected people to have food packets, children to get milk and biscuits and relief kits will be provided among 100 flood victim families at an emergency basis.

So, the supported families will get some mental satisfaction and strength to fight with the burning situation. Target budget of the project is $ 100,000. Unfortunately, no fund is raised yet. So, we are requesting to the global donors to help us so that we can reduce the sufferings of the flood victims to some extent.
