Disaster Management Programme
DEW is working in some of Bangladesh's disaster prone areas such as the char land of river Jamuna and Bhramaphutra in greater Mymensingh district. Floods are a very common phenomenon in these areas. Most of the year floods threaten, and damage the livelihoods of the chardwellwers. So it’s a key mission of DEW to help the flood victims and rehabilitate them.
DEW provides food, shelter, treatment, medicine, water purifying tablets and other necessary relief and rehabilitation assistance to chardwellers. A number of donors and NGOs, such as Oxfam, WFP, and the World Fair Trade organization helped DEW to implement its relief and rehabilitation programme.
