Emergency Appeal for Floods in Eastern India

Emergency Appeal for Floods in Eastern India

100% of Amount donated by you will directly go into relief and rebuilding work for flood-torn states of India: Bihar and Assam.

Floods in Bihar and Assam have created a lot of havoc, over 10 million people have been affected in 40 districts and over 120 deaths have been reported in the past week apart from reports of several people missing.

With the southwest monsoon intensifying, Assam is facing a second wave of flooding, affecting 25 of its 32 districts and displacing 33 lakh people. 3 million big and small livestock and poultry - a major source of livelihood in this region has been badly affected in the floods. These devastating floods have claimed the lives of more than 100 people. Save the Children is responding in 3 worst-affected districts of Assam – Dhemaji, Majuli and Sonitpur. Scaling up our response, we are now reaching out to children and their families through Education Kits and Livelihood Support (both men and women). This is in addition to the distribution of Shelter Kits and Hygiene Kits along with setting up of Child Friendly Spaces. Our humanitarian response in Assam has till date reached out to 4,597 beneficiaries, including 1,925 children.


The flood fury in Bihar has gone from bad to worse with 100 crore million people getting affected across 15 districts. The death toll in the state has mounted to 304. The deluge has marooned several areas in the districts of Gopalgunj, Sitamarhi, and East Champaran. About 3.59 lakh people have been evacuated to safer places and 2.13 lakh people have been moved to 504 relief camps in different places. Save the Children's teams are on the ground - monitoring and assessing the situation and we have initiated response operations in Sitamarhi and Kishanganj districts. So far we have distributed 200 Non-food item and setting up of one child friendly space has also been initiated.

Overall, our aim is to reach 9,500 families: 4,500 in Assam and 5,000 in Bihar, covering around 53,000 adults and more than 21,000 children. This number will be increased if required. Please come forward and contribute your bit. Your support can save lives.
