CARE mobilizing to help millions at risk from Cyclone Mahasen in Bangladesh and Myanmar

UPDATE: Cyclone Mahasen hit Bangladesh's southern coast on Thursday morning, while heavy rains and strong winds lashed neighboring Myanmar. Though the damage so far is minimal, heavy rains continue and there are risks of land- and mudslides. CARE will start assessments to determine our response as soon as the storm passes.

CARE is on the ground in Bangladesh and Myanmar.

We will be expanding our emergency response to Cyclone Mahasen in the coming hours and days. In the immediate aftermath of a disaster of this scope and scale, CARE helps survivors access food, clean water, shelter, medical care and more.

Right now, we have 247 trained and experienced emergency responders ready or responding in areas in the path of the storm, and more on stand-by if a broader response is needed. In addition, we have emergency kits, food and clothing ready for distribution to famililes in need, and we're sending water pumps and other equipment people may need to access clean water and clear debris.
