Somalia: Flood update (as at 30 April 2013) - Info graphic

from UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
Published on 30 Apr 2013

In April, parts of the country particularly the south were affected by flooding following heavy rains across Somalia and the Ethiopian highlands. The Juba and Shabelle river basins continued to receive moderate to heavy rains during the month. These floods have led to loss of property, damage to infrastructure and displacement of people. Humanitarian partners are supporting flood-affected communities with several activities, including pumping water from flooded areas, provision of non food items, water purification and rebuilding river banks to allow people to go back to their homes.
