Children can get cut off from their schools, their studies hampered and opportunities lost. That’s why Friendship’s schools are designed to be easily dismantled and strategically relocated.

“Covid-19 was already tough on us, most of the villagers couldn’t find a job. Now they also have to deal with a devastating flood,” says Rahim, an autorickshaw driver who is presently squatting on an embankment. “I, along with 32 more village people were trained by Friendship. Now we go to rescue our own villagers with the volunteers.” He says his village, Lal Chamar, has received no government relief since the Covid-19 crisis began.

Though it may look like a swamp, this was once a dry path. The floods hamper every aspect of life in the chars. Dozens of chars/villages are vulnerable this year, with over a 100,000 people living within them.

Abu Bakor Siddiq's family of 5 is one of the many others every year that are displaced by erosion. He faces the prospect of having to rebuild his home at a cost of some 150,000 taka (1,500 euro) with no savings, and having also lost his stockpiles in the sudden flooding and erosion.

The IIED found that rural Deshis are spending an avg $2b/year to address the impacts of climate change, and most of it out of their own pockets.

Shawkaruddin spent more than 40,000 on vegetable crops which are now inundated. He also has 1 acre of jute under water and there isn't much chance it will survive. If the flood recedes quickly, he might be able to save some of his paddy.

This year in Kurigram, more than 1000 acres of crop have already been damaged in this year's flood. Friendship's Transition Fund helps those who have lost their livelihoods recover.
