About 14 million people are being made homeless on average each year as a result of sudden disasters!
Hi, My name is Ravin Thangarajoo. I'm 20 years old from Malaysia. Currently, I'm a student in a local university studying Computer Science.
A unique modelling exercise based on the latest data covering 204 countries and territories calculates that sudden onset disasters such as floods and cyclones, are displacing on average 13.9 million people each year, excluding those involved in pre-emptive evacuations.
Most of this displacement is being driven by flooding which is on the increase in a warming world where population growth in hazard-prone parts of the world has increased exposure.
Eight of the ten countries with the highest levels of Average Annual Displacement or probable risk of future displacement and loss of housing are in south and south-east Asia: -
* India, 2.3 million
* China, 1.3 million
* Bangladesh, 1.2 million
* Vietnam, 1.0 million
* Philippines, 720,000
* Myanmar, 570,000
* Pakistan, 460,000
* Indonesia, 380,000
* Russia, 250,000
* USA, 230,000.
The risk of displacement could rise as populations swell and the impacts of climate change become more severe, said a report issued on Friday by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) and the Geneva-based Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC).
Please help us to raise money for Need AID. All the fund will be utilized for water, food & temporary shelter for the survivors on the ground. We will work together with young volunteers from universities and collages for the distribution of clean water and food in the affected area all around the world. We will strive to educate and provide essential basic care to the affected people to prevent starvation. All the transaction and expenses will be published and made available to the public in our social media.
We are collecting funds to purchase tents, foods and water for the victims. Hope you could contribute any amount for our dream to make people happy would come true. Thank you.
Meanwhile, i know this project that i'm doing individually "currently" is going to be tough and hard. As we're from Malaysia, we will be doing small helps for the homeless people around here by providing water and food in a weekly/monthly basis. I believe in my idea and i could somehow make an impact in the society in spreading love and being there for the others. Thank you.

I want this to be going on, and hopefully we could start up like an actual non profit organization eventually after going huge with the help from this platform.
