PRETORIA, 11 septembre 2012 (IRIN) - En avril dernier, l'archipel des Comores a été balayé par des pluies comme personne n'en avait vu depuis des décennies, qui ont déplacé des familles entières et détruit les cultures et les sources de revenus des plus pauvres. Lors d'une conférence de bailleurs de fonds qui s'est tenue la semaine dernière, le pays, soutenu par les Nations Unies et le gouvernement sud-africain, a lancé un appel d'un peu plus de 19 millions de dollars pour se remettre sur pied.
