The Sundarbans is situated in a region prone to a high incidence of natural calamities. Over the past two centuries the coastal areas and offshore islands of Bangladesh, which the majority of the Sundarbans belongs to, have been affected by 35 severe cyclones and storm surges. Increasing the likelihood of flooding events, the Sundarbans region become more vulnerable.
Recent atmospheric depressions caused high rainfall, which submerged the roads and home of the local people. Water level is rising very quickly. People have no other way than moving to a shelter. BEDS along with Village Disaster Management Committee (VDMC) are working together in this miserable time. They are going to each people’s house and taking them to Cyclone Shelter and Training Center. They are taking extra care for children and old people. Together we can minimize the disaster loss and misery.
