Flood Hits Champion Village

Champion Village*, Bangladesh

 

As we know, unfortunately the coronavirus pandemic has affected much of the world and many people have died, including thousands in Bangladesh. To add to the problem, a flood recently hit the village. When our Transformational Community Development (TCD) facilitator Jian** tried to visit the village, he saw that many places were underwater.

Sadly, in 2018 he lost his left hand in an accident and had to change jobs. Now he raises ducks on a duckling farm. He has a small farm of 400 ducklings. Every 2 months the duckling becomes a mature duck and he earns 100 taka profit per duck.

Cyclone Farni hits India and Bangladesh

GHNI teams and villagers have been hit by Cyclone Farni and we expect several more to be impacted as the storm moves through India and Bangladesh.  We have not yet connected with our staff experiencing the storm, but we know they will be met with many people seeking help after the storm passes.

As we know more, we will share.  Will you please offer a hand up to villagers seeking to end their own extreme poverty who have been hit by this monster storm?  Let's help them keep progressing forward.
