Help Bangladesh Flood Victims!

August 2004
Help Bangladesh Flood Victims!

Bangladesh, one of the poorest nations in the world has, once again, been ravaged by a disastrous flood, bringing the nation to a virtual standstill and making the life of millions unbearable.

** More than 30 million people have been affected

** Raging torrents have washed away crops, cattle, homes, and people.

** Road, rail, and other transportation and communication links have been severely disrupted.

** People are starving and left out cold around water mixed with pungent raw sewage that has burst out of the semi-effective sewer system.

** The filthy waterlogged surroundings are making hungry and thirsty people sick of diarrhea, cough, fever, and other water born diseases without access to medication.

Your help is urgently needed to save lives! Please write checks to Bangladesh Relief Fund and mail it to: Bangladesh Relief Fund C/o American Red Cross. P.O. Box 97089

Washington DC 20090-7089
