In 2017, large parts of Bihar were flooded between 12th to 20th August. Heavy rains in Nepal had resulted in a sudden increase in water discharge and flash floods in several rivers – Gandak, Burhi Gandak, Bagmati, Kamla, Kosi, and Mahananda. More than 1500 villages were flooded in the twelve affected districts. Darbhanga and Khagaria are two of the worst affected districts in the state with thousands of families being displaced. Even almost a year later, situation for flood-hit families is still grim and people need support to restore their lives.
