“I could not find my son,” says Sufia (35). “I jumped into the water, thinking ‘my son isn’t there anymore’.” Dan Chung/Oxfam

This is Sufia. Her story is every parent’s nightmare. Her five-year-old son was swept away when a massive flood struck her village. While nursing her new-born baby she turned away and in an instant he was gone. Now Sufia’s community live in constant fear that the floods will return and take more lives with them.

Nothing can bring Sufia’s son back. But with your support, Oxfam can help save many more lives. Your donation can help us build flood shelters and new houses on raised ground to protect families who are at risk right now. Your donation can also help build irrigation systems that help families grow crops even in drought. But we need your help.

You may be familiar with Sufia's story from our TV text appeal. If you'd rather not donate by phone you can donate here on our website.
