Summary

The surge in flood waters have inundated 21 districts in Bangladesh particularly in the north affecting over 2 million people. Usually the difficulty of floods is duration. i.e. the consequent scarcity of food / supplies; or unpredictability of time which leads to agricultural losses. This time it's the sheer magnitude. Friendship is providing rescue, shelter, water, sanitation and emergency medical support from the relief contingency budget and we urgently need to replenish the same to continue

Challenge

The floods this year are at the extreme, affecting over 2 million people. Their lives and livelihoods are at stake, with people and their livestock in mortal threat of drowning, hunger, thirst, exposure, and lack of shelter, accessibility and sanitation. 42 Friendship schools have been closed temporarily. Several of our schools, legal booths, clinics, weaving centres and offices have been submerged. Measures need to be taken immediately.

Solution

Friendship's extant interventions have been strengthened with search and rescue efforts from 400+ Friendship Flood Volunteers and 200+ staff. 9 medical teams are operating emergency health camps. All of Friendship's raised plinths are providing shelter to hundreds of people and their livestock. 17 schools sheltered thousands of others. 84 of our tube well mechanics and solar mechanics are active, along with floating mobile charging stations, temporary tube wells and latrines beings installed.

Long-Term Impact

10 years ago, food was the first need. Today with interventions from various organisations where Friendship played a large role especially in the riverine islands, people have learned to save money and dry food stocks through our community savings model. Friendship is providing support from the relief contingency budget and we urgently need supplies of medicine, water, sanitation, volunteer support etc. to continue. If the flood lasts, food and rehabilitation support will surely be needed.
