A  Flooded  Village

A Flooded Village

It was the rainy season and, for one whole week, the rain poured incessantly. The water level in the river rose steadily until the water spilt over, flooding many low-lying areas.

My village was one of the areas affected and we had to move our belongings to higher ground. There, we waited for rescue teams to arrive. The whole village was submerged in about one meter of water. The currents were swift and merciless, sweeping away livestock and furniture.

Red Crescent members could be seen busy evacuating old folk, women and children trapped by the rising waters. Flood victims were taken to a Flood Relief Centre. Here we were given hot drinks, porridge and milk for the babies. Some had to be given clothes and blankets as they could not save anything in time.

After three days, the rain subsided and the flood waters receded. It was such a relief to see the sun again. Flood victims began to move back home, to clean up the place as well as to assess the damage.
