Bangladesh and India face catastrophic losses
Super Cyclonic Storm Amphan has devastated Bangladesh and India, wreaking havoc across the countries. The strongest storm to hit the region in a decade has forced the evacuation of millions, and sadly, killed dozens of people – with the death toll expected to rise.
CARE is on the ground surveying the damage and taking stock of people’s immediate needs. Low-lying coastal areas have been flooded by heavy rain and large waves. It’s not yet known how many houses have been destroyed, but it’s clear that many people are going to require urgent shelter, food, clean water, and sanitation. Entire communities will need long-term support to rebuild their lives and livelihoods.
