Bangladesh is one of the countries most susceptible to floods in South Asia, as well as to the consequences of climate change. Being a riverine country, a great portion of Bangladesh is flooded every year. The principal sources of floods are the river floods from the overbank flows of the major river systems, the Brahmaputra, the Ganges, and the Meghna, in the monsoon months.
Local rainfall floods frequently accompany river floods caused by runoff from Bangladesh’s high-intensity, long-duration precipitation. This huge discharge of water cannot be drained to the Bay of Bengal because of high outfall water levels. As all the flows are drained in the Bay of Bengal only by the lower Meghna River, it takes time and lengthens the duration of the flood. Also, the synchronization of peak flows in the Brahmaputra and the Ganges is a major determinant of the extent of flooding in the country.
Flood-prone zones are the worst off among different disaster-prone areas in terms of food shortages, the incidence of extremely poor, insufficient income, illiteracy, and a high concentration of wage laborers.
Sometimes relief is provided to the vulnerable flood-affected people in several areas by the Govt. and Private Organizations. This action is executed under the supervision of local authorities with the help of volunteers.
Covid-19 was at its peak, making the situation even worse. At This time, the volunteers searched and listed the neediest people so that the needy people can get relief as the first priority. These are the people for which the deprived or less privileged can stand out with enthusiasm. This humanity is something that keeps the world alive.
