At least 300 people have died in the flooding
since heavy rains began sweeping across the continent two months ago. With
nearly half of Africa's countries hit, the cost of the damage, is only
beginning to emerge.
More than 1.5 million people in 18 countries
have been affected, with thousands displaced and massive damage to crops
and livestock leading to fears of food shortages.
ActionAid partners are on the ground
in Uganda, Ghana and Nigeria.
In the districts of Katakwi, Amuria,
Soroti and Kumi more than 400,000 people have been displaced and 18 deaths
have been reported.
