sponsored by PALMAL GROUP OF INDUSTRIES LTD.
A devastating flash flood hit the northeastern districts of Sylhet and Sunamganj in Bangladesh. Prolonged heavy rains in northeastern India have affected more than two million of his people living on the banks of Bangladesh’s Surma Kushiyala river. Many counties of Kanaighat, Gowainghat, Companyganj, Jaintapur, Zakiganj, Sylhet Sadar, Fenchuganj, and Sylhet as well as some counties of the Sunamganj and Netrokona districts were flooded. Heavy rains starting Wednesday 11 May 2022 exacerbated the flood scenario. More than 300 villages and roads in Companiganj in Sylhet, Gowainghat, and Upazilas in Jaintapur were flooded. 42 emergency shelters for flood victims have been opened in Gowainhat. Meanwhile, water from the Surma River seeped into buildings and businesses in the district. All road connections in Gowainghat Upazila have been interrupted. About 90% of the Upazila residents were stranded. Currently, MASTUL Foundation has taken the initiative to rebuild 1,000 homes destroyed by floods in the Sylhet region through their post-disaster management project named “Emergency Flood Damage Rehabilitation and Livelihoods for Flood Victims in Sylhet Region”. On Wednesday 27th July 2022, MASTUL Foundation’s post-disaster management project of Emergency Flood Damage Rehabilitation has officially begun at the South Sunamganj Upazila office by supporting with materials to build houses for half a hundred families affected by the floods.

“দেনা কইরা ঘর বানাইলাম, বানের জলে সব ভাইসা গ্যাছেগা….. অহন একটু ত্রাণের টিন পাইলে পোঁচা তক্তা দিয়া হইলেও ঘর বানতে পারি। আমারে কয়তা টিন দেন ভাই ….”
When the MASTUL Team went to Saiful Mia’s house, he was trying to gather together bamboo, old tin, a little straw from the house that had been washed away. Seeing his helpless condition, we proceeded to help him.
