Since the 16 June heavy rains including torrential rains on 21 June with nearly 200 mm of water in less than 24 hours, equivalent of several weeks of rain, have caused major flooding and landslides in several neighbourhoods of Abidjan. To date, 15 people died and 114 were injured. A total of 11,478 people are affected and need emergency assistance including shelter for 2,418 people who lost their houses.
On 13 July, the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) has launched an appeal to intervene in the communities Abobo, Anyama, Attecoubé, Bingerville, Port-Bouët, Grand-Bassam, Azaguié, Bonoua, and Dabou. With the support of DG ECHO, the IFRC will assist at least 4,686 people with shelter and livelihoods support through cash transfers, and activities to limit the spread of waterborne diseases.
