FOCUS - Sahel: The food crisis looms
A future in dotted lines Log book of a mobile team at the gates of the Sahara Deprived of food and income “Many are those who would not cope without solidarity”
The current floods in Cambodia, which have affected more than 50,000 families and destroyed 20,000 hectares of crops, or even tropical storm 12-E in Nicaragua, which has caused floods, landslides, considerable destruction of housing, social and economic infrastructure and massive population displacements, are two recent examples of little known humanitarian emergencies. Such crises have not mobilized much, but ACTED still intends to deliver a response.

ACTED Uganda: ACTED responds to ?oods in Eastern Uganda
The eastern part of Uganda has been affected by unusually heavy rains since July 2007. The rains resulted in massive ?ooding and landslides affecting thousands of people with mass displacement occurring. Houses, sanitation systems, roads and bridges have been destroyed and food crops have either been damaged or washed away. Tragically, most of the ? ood affected areas are those that have recently returned IDPs within their communities. The returnees had just started a new life outside the IDP camps when the ?oods hit.
