Key Facts

South Asia experienced the worst flooding in decades, killing thousands and decimating millions of hectares of crop. Heavy monsoon rains of historic proportions have destroyed tens of thousands of houses, schools, hospitals and displaced millions.

Worst Monsoon Flooding in Decades

41 million people have been affected by the flooding in India, Bangladesh and Nepal.

One Million Homes Destroyed

Millions of people are without homes and need emergency shelter

Millions of Hectares Of Crop Destroyed

Chronic food shortages as thousands of hectares of farms have been washed away

South Asia Floods Emergency

Across South Asia 41 million people have been hit by the monsoon rains and heavy flooding which in some places is the worst it has been in nearly 30 years. In Bangladesh, India and Nepal thousands have been killed and millions displaced. Two-thirds of Bangladesh is now under water. Families have lost their homes and crops, with over 9,000km of roads and 500 bridges have been damaged, further complicating the relief effort. 18,000 schools have been destroyed or damaged and 1.8 million children cannot go to their classes in India, Bangladesh and Nepal. We haven’t seen flooding on this scale in years and it’s putting the long-term education of an enormous number of children at great risk.

Millions of people face severe food shortages and disease caused by polluted flood waters. One of the big challenges is preventing potential outbreaks of disease like cholera or diarrhoea due to polluted flood waters. As floodwaters begin to retreat in many of the worst-affected parts of South Asia, farmers are counting the massive cost of the flooding disaster, which has destroyed more than 5.9 million acres of cropland. Some communities have been totally wiped out, with not a building left undamaged. Given the level of damage across the region we know the recovery process will be long and difficult, potentially taking several years. Millions of people have had their lives turned upside down and are in desperate need of help
