South Asia Flood Response
This year’s monsoon has seen very heavy rainfalls that have created floods and landslides in Nepal, Bangladesh and northern India. There is increasing loss of life and major losses of livestock, crops and homes, and growing concerns about water borne diseases.
Gifts to our South Asia Flooding Response will be used to help local partner organisations respond with food aid, shelter and clothing to those affected.
TEAR’s partner organisations are coordinating with government disaster response efforts to provide essential relief items.
TEAR’s disaster response support will be taking place in communities that are already involved in long-term development work with our partners. In the midst of the suffering there is evidence that the development projects have made the communities more resilient to respond to the disaster; community groups are being mobilised to distribute goods and supplies to others in need, disaster response teams trained by the project are active, raised wells are continuing to provide safe drinking water.
How you can help
TEAR Australia is urgently raising money toward a goal of $75,000 to assist in providing essential relief support to affected communities in Nepal and India.
Donations made to the South Asia Flooding project will directly support these efforts. All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
Should the amount raised exceed what is required, TEAR will redirect gifts to similar humanitarian and development work. How TEAR uses your donations.
