Emergency Flood Relief

The Sylhet Flooding Relief provides dry food and/or cash assistance to those affected by the disastrous flood in Sylhet, the northern, and the northeastern regions of Bangladesh. Our funds will assist affected households with dry food and/or cash support. As always our implementing partners have been rigorously vetted and continue to be very effective in the field.

Food & Cash Transfer

Donations here are used for food distribution and cash transfers to a diverse group of economically disadvantaged Bangladeshi residents as they face covid19, floods, cyclones, and the Rohingya refugee crisis. Your donations are distributed among a dozen rigorously vetted implementers including non-profits (e.g. JAAGO, BDesh, Bidyanondo)

Covid-19, Natural Disasters, and the Rohingya Refugee Crisis

As of 2019, the people of Bangladesh were looking ahead to a bright future for their country, spurred on by over a decade of remarkable economic growth. Ramifications of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Rohingya refugee crisis, and climate change reach deep resulting in worsening natural disasters (e.g., deadlier cyclones and frequent floods) and economic hardships (e.g., spiralling inflation and widespread poverty). 

Bangladesh now finds itself on the brink of a severe humanitarian crisis with a myriad of national and local emergencies that the country is struggling to keep up with using domestic resources. For instance, many have lost their livelihoods during the lockdown, and significant parts of the population are at a risk of starvation. The people of Bangladesh urgently need our help.

Let's help them fight hunger

We are a diverse international group of volunteers fundraising for Bangladesh, to help them fight hunger as they deal with the Covid-19 pandemic, an event we truly hope remains as rare if not rarer than once in a hundred years.

In addition to raising awareness and collecting donations, we care deeply about making the most of a donor’s money. So we have convened a team of students, academics, a professor specializing in economic development, experienced charity fundraisers and individuals with ground experience volunteering in Bangladesh to research and thoroughly vet NGOs and grassroots volunteer groups on behalf of the donors.


Our main priorities: vet and fundraise

Making a difference with your donation

Our aim is to collect and distribute donations to those who are making the biggest difference in fighting hunger. We hope our commitment and expertise will allow donors to feel confident that every dollar they contribute through us will be used to its fullest. All members of our team are volunteering for free and we do not work for any of the NGOs or grassroots projects we are vetting.

We hope you will join us in our fight to thwart this humanitarian crisis and to help save lives from being lost to hunger.

A word from our donors

With the global pandemic of COVID-19 sweeping across the world, the ensuing hunger crises in impoverished countries like Bangladesh may not be immediately clear. But the virus is a real and persistent threat to the livelihoods of many, casting many more into poverty. I therefore felt a strong need to help my compatriots but didn’t know where to donate to. That was when I heard about Nourish Bangladesh - a fundraising group which, after I talked to some of their volunteers, I knew I could trust to direct my money to the right place. Numbers upfront about these areas may paint a picture that people in Bangladesh aren't as suffering much, but this is due to lack of infrastructure to record every valuable life, so I urge for you to donate what you can.
