The floods affected three main areas of AFGOI district highly affected by this flash floods (due to high levels of Lower Shabelle River) for the last three days of this week including Dhagah Tuur(especially Dhamaley ), Bal-Guri and Raqayle and Eel-Qode (particularly Aytiro). Most families of Dhagah Tuur area are almost displaced, flood waters have now completely settled in the most houses of that area. Moreover, the rest two areas have been observed to have lower number of displaced persons as compared to Dhagah Tuur area. The first needs are drinking water, toilets and latrines. We also see that people need food, shelter and urgent medical attention. We also see medical conditions including diarrhea, vector-borne diseases and respiratory tract infections, and we are concerned about the possibility of an increase of malnutrition and other communicable diseases among children.
