Bangladesh Flood Emergency Appeal

HELP US DELIVER EMERGENCY AID TO PEOPLE IN BANGLADESH

20.06.22: Please spare anything you can for the people whose homes have been flooded in Bangladesh. Thousands of people have fled their villages – and more flooding is expected later today.

It’s estimated that 62 people have died in the flooding, which has affected India as well as Bangladesh. MORE rainfall is predicted today, affecting the North-eastern districts of Sunamganj and Sylhet and the Lalmonirhat, Kurigram, Nilphamari and Rangpur districts in North Bangladesh. Schools are being transformed into shelters for families and the army has undertaken a rescue mission, but aid providers are overwhelmed – and urgently need your help.

This flooding has destroyed homes, crops, and lives. Please send a donation today. You will help our Bangladesh partners to deliver critical supplies to more people.

FLOODING EXPLAINED…

The lush, low-lying nation of Bangladesh is served by 130 rivers, producing its rich, fertile land – but this geographical location also means that Bangladesh is battered by natural disasters including floods, storms and lightning. The current flooding started when a river burst its banks and is now being worsened by some of the heaviest rainfall seen in the last few years.

HOW WE WILL HELP…

Our partners on the ground focus in areas of dire need, including the world’s largest refugee camp, Rohingya. Please help us – all funds will be sent directly to Bangladesh to purchase essentials (like critical food parcels) for vulnerable people.

£30 buys a food parcel for a family of 5. Please donate whatever you can today

Emergency Response – Our aims

  • Respond immediately before, during and immediately after a natural disaster to save lives, reduce economic losses and alleviate suffering.
  • Ensure recovery of communities to normal or near-normal conditions.
  • Mitigate the damaging effects of unavoidable emergencies.
  • Prepare for emergencies that are likely to occur in specific countries

Stats

  • 89.3 million people worldwide were forcibly displaced (UNHCR UK, 2021)
  • Natural disasters kill 45,000 people per year (global average). (University of Oxford, 2021)
  • Globally, disasters were responsible for 0.1% of deaths over the past decade (University of Oxford, 2021)
  • Disasters affect those in poverty most heavily: high death tolls tend to be centered in low-to-middle income countries without the infrastructure to protect and respond to events. (University of Oxford, 2021)

Previous Work

Lebanon

Salam Charity is on the ground with our partners in Lebanon, to provide food, healthcare and shelters to those who have been affected by the recent explosion. We will be offering medical attention by supplying qualified medical staff who will administer first aid and primary healthcare.

Pakistan

The worst monsoon rains, in almost a century have hit the country severely, causing thousands to become homeless, leaving hundreds dead and facilities in a dire state. Our team on the ground was able to reach those parts of Karachi heavily affected by the flood, providing thousands with some respite.

Yemen

Famine is devastating the country leaving millions without food and causing serious damage to the most vulnerable. Global Hunger Index indicates an alarming rate of food insecurity. Yemen is facing a catastrophe beyond anything that we can imagine. We have several projects in Yemen covering food, shelter, water and education.

Case Study

Thanks to your kind donations and ongoing support we were able to distribute food parcels to the destitute people of Yemen.

The area of Taiz has seen continuous fighting and it is the innocent civilians that suffer the most. We were able to get into the area with our longstanding partners and distribute lifesaving food parcels to 1,000 people.

We helped 200 families living in the worst conditions, many of which were suffering from acute malnutrition. They were supplied with culturally sensitive food packs that fed them for over a month. Each pack contained rice, pasta, oil, sugar, flour and other vital essentials.








Thousands of lives around the world are ruined by poverty, war and natural disasters every year. When people become homeless, they lose their sense of safety and security leaving them vulnerable and bereft of dignity.

We’ve been identifying the key issues that are preventing people from living a normal life, one being adequate shelter.

Food is a basic necessity for survival and also the key to a healthy life. Without regular healthy meals children struggle to go to school, carers struggle to work and communities are left battling to survive.

We work to provide sustainable long-term food solutions for communities in need, as well as offering short-term lifesaving interventions in response to global emergencies.

We’re working in Bangladesh, Lebanon, Pakistan and Yemen to provide winter survival kits, containing a food pack, a winter kit and a COVID-19 health kit.

Food costs
1 x Family food pack (lasting a whole month)
£50
2 x Family food packs (lasting a whole month)
£100

We’re providing a range of solutions in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Our hygiene kits contain protective gloves, masks, toilet rolls, disinfectant and hand sanitisers.

When we think of winter, we imagine cosy homes, hot drinks, and comfortable clothing. But that is a far cry from the harsh reality faced by millions of people every year. The bitter truth is that people in much of the world, are ill-equipped and unprepared to face the unrelenting cold of the winter season.

A lack of adequate clothing and fuel is causing death. Mothers are forced to make decisions that none of us should ever have to make: to buy food to feed their children or buy fuel to keep them warm enough to survive the extreme winters.
