Devastating floods cause death: Nigeria’s internal crisis and widespread damage
The floods have caused more than 600 deaths and left over 2 million people without a place to call home. CARE is providing aid to those who have lost everything because of the calamity.
Hussaini Abdu, CARE’s Country Director in Nigeria, Issues the Following Statement
“Devastating floods in 33 of Nigeria’s 36 states have killed more than 600 people and displaced over two million people, with climate change, hunger, conflict-induced displacement, and poverty worsening the situation,” according to the BBC. “The floods have occurred in 33 of Nigeria’s 36 states.” The devastating effects that the floods have had on food production constitute a significant threat to the country and have the potential to bring about a catastrophic food catastrophe.
This danger has the potential to result in a severe scarcity of food supplies. In Nigeria, CARE International is providing financial assistance to low-income families, with a special emphasis on households in which women serve as the primary breadwinner. The users have a variety of options available to them for making use of this assistance.
CARE is also providing assistance in the form of support for sufficient hygiene measures in the places that have been affected, with the goal of reducing the risk of individuals becoming infected with waterborne diseases such as cholera.
