Climate change is a burning issue in all over the world. Bangladesh is a land of rivers. It is prone to flooding due to being situated on the Brahmaputra River Delta (also known as the Ganges Delta) and the many distributaries flowing into the Bay of Bengal. Due to being part of such a basin and being less than 5 meters above mean sea level, Bangladesh faces the cumulative effects of floods due to water flashing from nearby hills, the accumulation of the inflow of water from upstream catchments, and locally heavy rainfall enhanced by drainage congestion. Bangladesh faces this problem almost every year.

Recently the flood condition is becoming very bad. Almost every place is going under the water. The life of people in the flood area becoming unbearable in these days. They are facing scarcity of Food, not even water they can drink from the area. So, this flood condition become course for their physical, financial and mental condition. Living under water is not a matter of joke. They don’t even get proper support from the government. They are living a very uncertain life.
