Update on Floods in Somalia.
New York, Jan. 16, 1998 -- A Lutheran World Relief grant of $20,000 is for flood victims in Somalia. Overflow of the Juba and Shabelle rivers has flooded villages in the surrounding areas, leaving people temporarily or permanently homeless. Most of the food traditionally stored underground has been destroyed and standing crops are rotting under water. Chances of a second planting are uncertain. Latrines have been flooded, dysentery is on the rise and a severe outbreak of malaria
