What's the situation?

Torrential flooding has affected more than 20 million people in India, Bangladesh and Nepal.

Over 700 people have already lost their lives.

In India, 6.8 million children are in danger as monsoon rains trigger a fresh wave of flooding.

2.2 million people have been forced from their homes in Bangladesh, including at least 600,000 children.

Hundreds of schools have closed and roads have been washed out.

In Nepal, the dirty stagnant water poses a new risk to children – an increased risk of waterborne illness like cholera.

It is thought to be the worst flooding in the region for a decade.
