Soukhouma District, Champasak Province - World Vision is responding to flooding in the southern part of Laos, where heavy rains have wreaked havoc on some 53,000 people in 56 villages.
After the Khamouan River’s banks burst in Soukhouma District, two-metre deep water submerged people’s homes, shops, and schools.
“I felt my body get wet and then I woke up. I saw the water up high, inside my house,” says Kone, a mother of six. “I woke up my children and wanted to move to another place, but we did not have a boat.”
