South Asia floods - India

World Vision Malaysia has completed its fundraising effort for South Asia flood - India. If you would like to support our work in ongoing disasters and emergencies around the world, please give to General Humanitarian Emergencies Fund.

We are helping the South Asia floods - India victims. With your help, we can give their livelihood back.

The South Asia region has been inundated by severe monsoon floods, killing over 1,000 people, destroying livelihoods and displacing families from their homes. One of the countries that have been severely affected is India, with the states of Bihar, West Bengal, Assam and Mizoram bearing the brunt of the intense flooding. Several World Vision Area Development Programmes (ADPs) are in flood-affected states, including Nabagram ADP, which is supported by World Vision Malaysia.

In the states of Bihar, West Bengal and Assam alone, over 30 million people are estimated to be affected. The destruction of crop land has caused severe economic damage, depriving many families of their livelihoods. Thousands are taking shelter in relief camps set up by national government authorities.

World Vision is already on the ground throughout the affected states, distributing food and non-food items, hygiene kits, shelter materials such as tarpaulin sheets, and more. As the crisis deepens, World Vision seeks to scale up the response in order to reach more people with immediate relief. All in all, we hope to raise USD 2.5 million in funding to help us do so.
