The European Union (EU) has provided assistance to 25,000 flood victims in Jamalpur, Sylhet, Sirajganj, Kurigram, Lalmonirhat, and Tangail districts.
The EU said in a press release today that it was providing 1,00,000 euros (about one crore taka) in humanitarian aid to help flood-affected people.
The Bangladesh Red Crescent Society (BDRCS) will meet the most urgent needs of the flood victims by providing cash assistance with EU funding.
This financial assistance will help people to take shelter in a safe place with their property and livestock, provide packaged food, water purification unit, tarpaulin, and necessary household items as well as provide first aid at the same time.
The funding is part of the EU’s overall contribution to the Disaster Relief Emergency Fund (DREF) of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the statement said.
The EU fears that the loss of crops and agricultural land as a result of the floods will have a significant impact on Bangladesh’s long-term food security and health system.
