Cyclone Amphan Strikes on May 20, hitting Bangladesh and India

On May 20, then Super-Cyclone Amphan made landfall, hitting regions of Bangladesh and India particularly hard. It is the strongest cyclone to form in the Bay of Bengal since 1999. Some 100 people have died, and nearly 10 million people across the region are estimated to have been affected. Islamic Relief teams in the area responded immediately to get emergency food aid and other essential items to vulnerable communities.

The cyclone’s strength has dwindle alhamdulilah, but the need is still immense.

Islamic Relief USA has launched this emergency to support critical relief efforts for our sisters and brothers across the region. Please remember them in your dua and in your donations.

Islamic Relief’s Legacy Across Asia

Islamic Relief has been on the front lines of humanitarian aid for Asia since 1993.

Our first calls to action in the region were to provide emergency relief. Since then, our dedication to work across Asia has expanded to include education, development initiatives, vocational training, women’s literacy, orphan sponsorship, Islamic microfinance, poverty alleviation, and water, sanitation, and hygiene. And most recently, we’ve focused our energies on helping refugees across the region—like those from Myanmar—get the essentials they need to survive.

Donors, like you, support these efforts because they know of the great impact we can have when we join together to serve our sisters and brothers in need.
