Appeal for the flood victims in Chad
On top of the unprecedented challenges with COVID-19 and its huge impact on Chad and worldwide, people in Chad found themselves surrounded by another overwhelming challenge causing them unimaginable distress. Heavy rains have caused widespread devastating floods in many provinces across the country.
More than 7,122 households (31,853 individuals) have been affected in the capital alone!. Imagine the entire country where thousands of families are still suffering by the ongoing floods. They have lost their houses, livestock and struggling with the widespread of diseases such as Malaria, COVID-19 and waterborne diseases.
According to the International Organisation for Migration ‘as of 25 August 2020, no assistance has been provided to meet their needs and floods have been ongoing since early August’.
They are frightened and feel neglected as no one there to help, please help us raise funds to give the necessary support and provide those affected by floods with shelters and food.
