In less than an hour what she had called home was washed away.

“I could see the clouds quickly gathering. I brought the children from the nearby school back to the house,” she said. “All of a sudden, there was thunder and the rain came down with so much force. My roof started leaking.”

Humanitarian organizations provided vital support to populations in crisis, thanks to the extraordinary mobilization of governments, partners on the ground, and the international community, who listened and responded quickly to our appeal.
