Donate to Bihar Floods Relief Fund

Annual flooding in Bihar accounts for about 30-40% of the flood damages in India; 22.1% of the total flood affected population in India is reported to be located within the state of Bihar. Bihar Floods 2020 have, as on the 20th of July, 2020, affected over 3.5 lakh people. The majority of rainfall in Bihar is concentrated in the three months of monsoon, during which the flow of rivers increases up to 50 times causing floods in Bihar. Most of Bihar, 73% per cent of the total land area, is vulnerable to flood. Twenty-eight districts of the State fall under most flood prone and flood prone districts. So far eight districts have been affected by floods, and as the number continues to rise, victims of the floods need to be provided immediate and effective relief.

We are Responding

ActionAid has been providing emergency relief and support to people affected by floods in Bihar since 1994. With over 26 years of experience in flood relief response in the State, we are currently responding to provide relief in flood affected areas of Sitamarhi and East Champaran districts.

Over 30,900 people have already been affected in Sitamarhi district and 30,062 people have been affected in East Champaran. With over 13,535 people evacuated since the beginning of the floods, the Government of Bihar has set up at least five relief camps with 1,075 people staying in them. However, in the current situation with the spread of COVID-19, it is challenging for affected people to access the relief usually expected during such crisis.
