Bangladesh flood crisis
Heavy rainfall in Bangladesh has left millions caught in flooding across the country. Low-lying areas 'are under water' leaving people trapped on higher ground. Landslides, flash floods and collapsed buildings are claiming hundreds of lives. Thousands are now stranded and displaced.
The situation is critical. There is limited food and people are drinking contaminated floodwater to stay alive. Waterborne diseases and malaria are spreading, making people seriously ill.
*Give what you can to save lives*
Human Relief Foundation (HRF) are sending an emergency response team next week to provide food, water and medicine.

The Chittagong Welfare Trust also provide immediate life-saving aid, particularly to the Rohingya refugees from neighbouring Myanmar (Burma). This includes hand pumps for drinking water, food parcels, medicine and temporary shelters.
