Typhoon Komen blazed through the Bay of Bengal over the summer,
killing hundreds of people in Myanmar, Bangladesh, and India and lashing
the region with monsoon rains. The ensuing widespread floods and landslides
affected millions after destroying homes, crops, and roads.
In hard-hit Myanmar, where 12 of 14 states were affected, 117 people died and
nearly 400,000 people were displaced.
World Vision staff helped 60,600 flood survivors in the first three months of the
response by providing drinking water, food supplies, latrines, shelter kits, mosquito
nets, and school supplies. The team plans to continue helping affected families recover
over the next year.
