Fighting the Merciless Floods with Love: CoinEx Charity Engages in Disaster Relief in Flood-hit Bangladesh
Recently, heavy monsoon rains have caused widespread flooding in the northeastern part of Bangladesh, hitting millions of people. The floods have brought severe damage to Bangladesh: an estimated 7.2 million people have been affected in the northeastern region of the country. Many families have been separated, and some residents, made homeless by the floods, have had to hide in open spaces. The safety and survival of women and girls in these households are worrying — they are in desperate need of shelter and emergency relief items.
To help people in the flooded areas in Bangladesh cope with the disaster and rebuild their homes as soon as possible, CoinEx Charity dispatched a rescue team to purchase supplies, including medicines and food, as soon as it could. The team then rushed to Kurigram and Netrakona, two flooded regions. Up to now, the organization has donated plenty of supplies to locals hit by the floods, including 500 rice, 500 beans, 500 onions, 500 potatoes, 500 biscuits, 500 candles, 500 matches, 500 candy gift boxes, 500 cold medicine, 500 sewer cleaning tablets, etc, helping over 400 households.
According to reports by UNICEF, the accumulated rainfalls of the floods are worse than the ones the country had experienced in 1998 and 2004. Bangladesh has about 700 rivers, making it particularly vulnerable to flooding during extreme weather events. There, floods are a regular menace to millions of people living in low-lying areas. Experts say that climate change is increasing the frequency, ferocity, and unpredictability of flooding in the country. Through rescue efforts in Bangladesh, CoinEx Charity has fully noted the real needs of the flood-hit residents.
The floods submerged thousands of houses and led to disrupted road communications and power failures. Providing residents with much-needed items such as food and medicine, CoinEx Charity has been making rescue efforts, as well as charitable donations, in the flooded areas. Although the rainfalls have now decreased, and the water level has dropped, the country still faces tough challenges in terms of flood relief and work resumption. CoinEx Charity calls on more charities, private entities, and caring enterprises around the world to help Bangladesh stick it out through the present challenge.
Caring for disaster-hit regions with a loving heart
CoinEx Charity, relying on the geographical advantages brought by its global presence, is actively involved in charitable campaigns that focus on disaster relief, Covid prevention, education equity, and poverty alleviation in countries across the globe.
In the past six months, the organization has made donations worth over $180,000. In January 2022, when the Philippines was hit by typhoon Rai, CoinEx Charity immediately sent a rescue team to the country, made cash donations to the disaster-hit areas, and distributed 300 supply packages. In February 2022, it not only provided New Year’s food packages for poor people in Iran but also made emergency donations to Brazil when the country was hit by heavy rainfalls. In May 2022, the organization kicked off the CoinEx Charity Book Donation Worldwide.
To date, it has visited 19 schools in 12 countries and donated over 12,000 books. Love never ends. CoinEx Charity will always focus on disadvantaged groups in need of help around the world.
