The South Asian Bar Association of Northern California is deeply concerned for the victims of the tragic and widespread flooding occurring across multiple countries in South Asia and pledges its support.
Widespread flooding caused by an extraordinarily strong monsoon season has devastated communities across Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh and Nepal, killing over 1,000 people and impacting millions. Mumbai has experienced the worst flooding since 2005 and rural communities across the region have seen crops destroyed by the flooding and forced thousands to abandon their homes.
To help aid these communities as they struggle to rebuild, SABA-NC is donating $5000 to Mercy Relief, a regional non-profit providing relief aid to flood victims. Please consider similarly donating to Mercy Relief or any other non-profit assisting victims.
