“One of the worst-affected areas is Ulang in the north east. The devastation that we’re witnessing there is unprecedented. The people in these areas are used to flooding, but they’re telling us that these are the worst floods they’ve ever seen.
Many people have lost everything. They’ve lost their houses, they’ve lost their cattle and they’ve lost their crops. These are people who had very little in the first place, but they’re now in a desperate situation.
Our emergency teams are out there every day, travelling in boats from village to village. As an emergency organisation, we need to go where the people are. We’re providing healthcare through mobile clinics and distributing essential items, such as plastic sheet, blankets, cooking pots and mosquito nets and water. We’ve also set up water treatment facilities in two areas.
