CARE International staff throughout Africa are on high alert as torrential rains and flooding affect large parts of the continent.
United Nation's agencies estimate that more than a million people have been affected by flooding as torrential rain batters over 20 countries stretching from East to West Africa. Countries such as Ghana and Uganda are experiencing unusually high rainfall.
By Howard Lesser
Some of the most widespread flooding in years has swept across Sub-Saharan Africa, from Ghana, Niger, Mali, and Togo in the west to Ethiopia, Uganda, and Sudan in the east. In the last 24 hours, the International Red Cross (IFRC) has added Burkina Faso to its emergency rolls after 33 deaths were reported and more than 75-hundred homes destroyed in torrential rains. In addition, the UN World Food Program (WFP) is appealing for three-point eight million dollars to feed 470-thousand victims in Mauritania, where saturated supplies are putting thousands at risk.

les estimations du Programme alimentaire mondial des Nations Unies (PAM),
les inondations auraient affecté 1,5 million de personnes.
