Close to 30 million people in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Nepal are being affected by extensive flooding due to heavy monsoon rains. Over 1,900 are confirmed dead. The number of people affected will rise as floodwaters recede, and water-borne diseases start to spread.

In India, over 1,200 deaths have been confirmed, and over 18 million are homeless or affected by the unusually severe monsoon season. In addition, 67,000 livestock have perished, which are the main source of livelihood for many rural villages that are now under water.
