Haradhan Dey, along with his elderly mother, wife and two children, has been surviving on biscuits and dry foods for the past five days.
“No one has come to help us...we have not yet received any relief,” said the local of Dulal Member Bari area under Chattogram’s Raozan.
Haradhan’s family is one of 30 families marooned for five days in the waterlogged area. Many of them have not got any aid so far. Their predicament is similar to those of many others affected by the floods ravaging through the country.
Stranded in waterlogged areas, many flood victims remain unemployed, with little access to food and drinking water, a situation compounded by insufficient relief.
According to data from the ministry, there has been an allocation of Tk 3.37 crores; 22,350 of tonnes rice; 91,000 packets dry food; 7,500 sets of tents and 1,000 bundles of tin for flood-affected people across the country.
Around 21 lakh people have been affected by the flood so far.
Md Shah Kamal, senior secretary of the Ministry of Disaster Management and Relief said the government had arranged sufficient relief materials for those “who really needed it”.
