Bangladesh Winter Emergency:
Help us Protect the 7.1 million Who are Displaced This Winter.
As winter descends upon Bangladesh, the cold not only brings discomfort but poses a severe threat to the lives of countless individuals. Penny Appeal's Winter Emergency campaign is dedicated to providing a lifeline for the people of Bangladesh, especially the elderly and children, who bear the brunt of the chilling temperatures and the increasing intensity of natural disasters.
The Toll of Winter
Over 100 Lives Lost Annually: Each year, over 100 lives are tragically lost to the cold and winter-related illnesses, highlighting the urgent need for assistance.
Vulnerable Populations: The elderly and children are disproportionately affected, facing increased health risks and challenges as the temperatures plummet.
Escalating Natural Disasters
Increasing Intensity: Bangladesh grapples with an alarming rise in the intensity and extremity of natural disasters. Small to medium scale floods, cyclones, flash floods, and landslides occur with greater frequency each year.
Climate-Induced Displacement: A staggering 7.1 million individuals have been displaced due to climate change, leaving communities in a constant state of flux and vulnerability.
Crops in Peril: The uncertainty of weather patterns puts crops at risk, impacting livelihoods and exacerbating food insecurity.
