Overview

06/12/2019

Heavy rainfall between July and October caused flooding across several Chadian provinces.  Over 175,000 people have been affected, including more than 80,600 in Mayo-Kebbi Est region along the Logone River, which borders Cameroon?. Flooding has caused extensive damage to homes, bridges, and roads and has led to loss of life, although the number of deaths has yet to be reported. Mayo-Kebbi Est has been recently affected by high rates of cholera spread from neighboring Cameroon, first reported in mid-July 2019. Damage to water infrastructure by flooding may further drive the spread of disease if sanitation measures are not taken. Priority needs are for food, water, shelter, sanitation, and NFIs. Some communities are in areas that are difficult to access. Flooding has also been reported since 20 November in Salamat province, destroying cropland and affecting at least 160 households. Cases of malaria have been rising in Salamat, and there is a continued risk of waterborne diseases spreading. Overall it is unclear how people may be affected across the country and how many may have been displaced.?
