Bangladesh Disaster Relief
Amount Raised $0.00
Team Goal $0.00
The Disaster Relief project enables SIM to provide relief assistance to populations where working relationships are already established. In the event of a natural disaster or crisis, funds available through this project will be used to conduct relief efforts through existing SIM staff in the area. Appropriate relief efforts may include distribution of dry foods and Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS), rebuilding homes that have been destroyed or damaged and other services as opportunity arises.
SIM in Bangladesh works with many subsistence level Bengalis and Bangladeshi communities, whose entire livelihood can be wiped out in a flood or other natural disaster. Environmental conditions in Bangladesh are such that monsoon rains and flooding from overflowing rivers are not uncommon.
