21 July 2020, Rongpur, Bangladesh -Feroza Begum, 45, hails from Gobindpur of Haldia union under Shaghata upazila in Gaibandha district. She lives with her husband and three children, but is now displaced due to the floods, forcing them to take shelter at a nearby school. The silo she received at a distribution ceremony organized by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) at Haldia union parishad at Shaghata upazila will enable them to store dry food. After the flood subsides, she hopes the authorities would arrange work for them, especially for her husband, who lost his livelihood of fishing. On 4 July a high probability of severe flooding was forecast for mid-July along the Jamuna River in Bangladesh, with one-third of the area's total population likely to be affected. That warning was the trigger for the UN to immediately release $5.2 million from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) to help communities urgently prepare and protect themselves. The money went to three participating agencies ? the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) to enable them to prepare to distribute cash, livestock feed, storage drums, and hygiene, dignity and health kits.
