In June 2022, heavy rainfall caused the worst floods in Bangladesh in more than a century – displacing nearly 4 million people and killing dozens of people and countless livestock. Some 94% of Bangladesh’s Sunamganj town and 84% of the surrounding Sylhet district submerged. Locals are facing damaged homes, lost livestock, a shortage of clean drinking water and a surge in sanitation-related diseases. We are fundraising for YouthNet for Climate Justice to support their infrastructure and community rebuilding efforts in Kurigram, one of the poorest areas in Bangladesh and most affected by the recent floods.
