HOW CAN YOU HELP THE FLOOD CRISIS IN SYLHET NOW                

By Sadia Noor Joya

The last couple of weeks have been nothing less than hell on Earth for the residents of Sylhet and Sunamganj due to the violent flood that has shown no mercy. This devastating flood has made its place in history by showcasing its wrath, gaining the throne of the queen of all floods in the 122 years flood history of Sylhet. At this moment, more than 80% of Sylhet and more than 90% of Sunamganj is under water.
Communication options have become limited, there is scarcity of food and shelter and it is unknown if the missing, trapped person is still breathing. Animals, both wild and domestic are also suffering the violence of nature; this can be observed here. The situation has devastated to such an extent that popular social media faces have come forward to work in unison with the courageous Bangladesh Army Officers and volunteers coming from all over Bangladesh to drag residents out of this misfortune. The Bangladesh Army has also launched the following toll free hotline numbers to help the flood victims:
+8801769177266, +8801769177267, +8801769177288; +8801852788000; +8801852798800; +8801852804477; +8801987781144; +8801993781144; +8801995781144; +8801513918096; +8801513918097; and +8801513918098. There has also been news of floods hitting further districts of Netrokona, Lalmonirhat, Nilphamari, Rangpur and Kurigram as most rivers are overflowing with wate

One of the most popular social media platforms, Facebook, has once proved that nothing is impossible if kind hearts join together for the greater good.

They all went in-person to help the flood victims, thereby setting examples of humanity for the youth at home and abroad. Social Worker Firoz Hasan from FreeMotion, YouTubers Salman Muqtadir, Iftekhar Rafsan and Tawhid Afridi, Actor Dipjol, Actor and Businessman Ananta Jalil, Actor Shakib Khan, Advocate Ahsan Bhuiyan’s non-profit organization Poriborton Kori, famed non-profit organization Bidyanondo, non-profit organizations “As Sunnah Foundation,” “FootStepsBD,” “Project Kritoggo” and the students of the 100th batch of Dhaka University 2020-2021 session have come together to address the crisis.
