Cyclone Mocha Appeal
Please donate now to support women and girls impacted by Cyclone Mocha.
Cyclone Mocha struck the Bangladesh-Myanmar border on Sunday 14 May, bringing heavy rains and strong winds of up to 250 kilometres per hour.
In Myanmar, it is estimated 5.4 million people live in the path of the cyclone; many living in wooden shelters or refugee camps not built to endure cyclonic conditions.
In Bangladesh, around 2.3 million people have been affected, including 930,000 Rohingya refugees.
The most immediate needs are shelter, clean water and sanitation. With evacuees living in huge numbers in small spaces, there is a high risk of waterborne and communicable diseases.
For women and girls, there is the risk of increased gender-based violence, insecurity, and gender-specific barriers and inequalities.
UN Women is working closely with UN agencies and humanitarian partners on the ground to ensure the specific needs of women and children are prioritised throughout the response.
Please donate now and support women and girls who urgently need help.
