Send Life-Saving Aid to Victims of Flooding in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is a country where poverty is high, infrastructure is poor and many families lack the means and opportunity to provide a good life and education for their children. Climate change has only exacerbated the population's struggles as it leaves its mark across the country.

Extreme floods are devastating north-east Bangladesh for the third time in 2022. Relentless monsoon rains have inundated homes, submerged roads, suspended railway travel and left thousands of families stranded without food or electricity. In the Sylhet district alone, 80% of the area went underwater.

The latest heavy rainfall has arrived at a time when the country is still recovering from the May crisis, when the worst floods in 18 years displaced over three million people.

With your support, our teams can continue distributing emergency parcels to survivors, including essential food and water purification tablets and eventually begin repairing homes once the floods clear.

Our work in Bangladesh also includes educational programmes, water projects, orphan sponsorship schemes and providing aid to the massive population of Rohingya refugees that have fled persecution in Myanmar.

Our brand-new school under construction in Sylhet will have the capacity to provide both primary and secondary education to orphans and needy children. With your help we can finish this wonderful school and provide disadvantaged children with access to first-class education.


Our Projects in Bangladesh

Rohingya Appeal

Since the eruption of wide-scale violence in Myanmar forced over 600,000 Rohingya refugees across the border into Bangladesh, we've been on the ground providing life-saving aid. 

Recently we constructed a huge tube well which is providing safe water to thousands of people every day. We plan to build more wells in the near future along with female friendly bathing units. 

Your support will help us to run a satellite medical camp which will provide free medical aid and distribute medicine in the camps from morning to night.  

We are also looking to distribute useful items such as solar lights, gas cylinders, jerry cans and household utensils along with winter relief packs containing blankets, shawls and warm children's clothing.  

With your help we can continue to support the Rohingya and provide sustainable means of survival for these displaced and persecuted people.

Secondary School - £80,000

Thanks to the generosity of a small group of university friends, who donated over £92,000, the four-story primary school building is nearly complete. The ground floor of the secondary school building has also been completed but a further £80,000 is needed to build the first and second floors.  

The first floor will house five classrooms and the second floor will have two classrooms and a computer lab. Both floors will have toilet facilities and a veranda corridor connecting the rooms.  

Once completed this school will be able to provide a standard of education that it's pupils previously could not have hoped for.

School Furniture & Facilities - £5,000

Once the schools are built we need to kit them out with the best equipment we can, in order to give these kids a first-class learning experience.  

The classrooms will need furniture and learning resources, and we'll build a play area for the children to have fun and socialise when they get a well-earned break from their studies. 

With a well-equipped school and space to play with their friends, we are aiming to provide an environment where children can flourish and grow into rounded, healthy members of society.
