Since the start of this year's monsoon and typhoon season, heavy rains, flash floods, storms and landslides have caused widespread devastation in many countries.

Afghanistan, BangladeshChinaNepalIndiaPakistan and Viet Nam have all been hit by major floods, which have forced the evacuation of millions of people.

Across South and East Asia, volunteers and staff from the Red Cross and Red Crescent have been responding to the disasters by helping rescue people, distributing emergency relief and providing essential services, such as health care and clean water.
