South Asia Emergency Appeal

This appeal is now closed. You can still give to support our ongoing work to help vulnerable people around the world.

Millions of people have been displaced across India, Bangladesh and Nepal due to torrential rains that have caused floods and landslides. More than 100 lives have been lost, and survivors’ homes and livelihoods have been destroyed. 

Besides shelter, the biggest challenge is access to safe drinking water. There is a high risk that diseases will spread due to poor sanitation. 

With millions in urgent need of safe shelter, clean water, food and medical supplies, we need to act now.
