In the wake of destructive flooding, Islamic Relief USA donors directly helped 72,500 people in the midst of the recovery process. This project focused on chlorinating water, building latrines, and helping families meet their food needs. Cash-for-work initiatives also provided a source of income, and this project helped improve health in the affected areas. The most vulnerable female-headed households, who lost significant property and assets in the flood, were given special priority and assistance.
