Because the media is tied up with coverage concerning Hurricane Harvey, few are aware that an even worse natural disaster is taking place in South Asia.

In recent weeks, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Bangladesh have received record amounts of heavy monsoon rains.

The devastating flooding that has followed has killed nearly 1,200 people — including children. Thousands of homes have also been submerged or lost completely, and poor villages have been left with no access to food or medicine.

The conundrum is one that won’t remedy itself, which is why we need to give it attention. As a result of the torrential rains, the country now faces long-term food insecurity due to the amount of farmland that has been ruined.

The U.N.’s World Food Program said in a statement last week, ”Many flood survivors have lost everything: their homes, their possessions, their crops.”

After scrolling through the photos below and becoming more educated on the situation, contact your local news station and urge them to report on it.

You can also help out by donating to the GlobalGiving Foundation, which is working with a number of charities and aid organizations to provide relief to many groups in South Asia.
