Emergency report: Sudan floods

More than 300,000 people have been left homeless as a result of the devastating floods in Kassala, Sudan and the surrounding locale. As the most active nongovernmental organization in the area, Plan is a member of the State Emergency Committee, which is assessing the situation and delivering food, drinking water and medication to those most in need.
Torrential rains on 29 and 30 July caused the River Gash, in the east of the country, to burst its banks, washing away villages and roads and damaging the area's infrastructure. The river's banks burst again at the weekend, with 15 communities where Plan works now seriously affected by the floods.
