In September 2019, we donated £20,000 to Plan International UK to support people affected by flooding in Bangladesh.
These floods affected more than 7.5 million people, including 114 people who lost their lives. An estimated 600,000 houses were damaged or destroyed, with damage to 6,640km of roads and other vital infrastructure, and hundreds of thousands of hectares of crops lost.
This grant provided vital supplies for displaced people; including blankets, mosquito nets, water buckets and personal hygiene products, which were distributed in Kurigram District, which was hit especially hard by this disaster.
