Challenge

Torrential rains have flooded India and Bangladesh, with more than a quarter of Bangladesh currently submerged. More than a million people are impacted. These floods come just months after a cyclone caused major devastation in the region - and as communities continue to manage the COVID-19 pandemic.

Solution

Through our signature community-led approach, our teams are responding immediately. We're providing critical supplies like food and shelter to communities impacted by the floods. We're also continuing to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and the whole web of injustices that make these crises disproportionately affect people in poverty.

Long-Term Impact

ActionAid's response is community-driven, women-led, and rights-based, which means your donation today invests in change that lasts. Your gift helps us respond to this crisis, sustains long-term disaster preparedness, and supports human rights around the world.
