Bihar Floods

The floods and heavy rains in Bihar have threatened the lives of millions of children. Urban Patna and nearby rural areas are under water, with almost every building being fully submerged.

Some 1.65 million have been affected across Bihar. Many Newborn hospitals have been flooded restricting access to medical facilities for pregnant woman and newborns, putting more lives at risk.

The situation is grim for the people of Bihar, especially children who are most vulnerable to disease, malnutrition and neglect.
