Floods, facts and figures

By Siaffa Bunduka | Supporter Engagement Manager

Many communities are rebuilding after the floods
Many communities are rebuilding after the floods

We look at some startling figures revealing the impact of the floods on the communities we work with in the Somali Region of Ethiopia. 

Across the Somali Region, most people depend on raising cattle for their livelihoods. The region has faced recurring natural and man-made disasters, such as flood, drought and conflict. These issues all negatively affect people's livelihoods, infrastructure, education and health.

The extent of the recent flooding has been unprecedented, causing untold damage and losses across this region. Statistics compiled during last month reveal the human impact of this disaster:

  • Over 1 million people across the Somali Region of Ethiopia have been affected by the floods
  • Over 800,000 people from this region alone needed support
  • Over 400,000 people from this region have been displaced from their homes
  • Over 60,000 children have missed schooling
  • Over 227 schools have been affected

As thousands of families return home and begin to rebuild their lives, we continue working with these communities to keep people healthy, safe and nourished in the long term.

Please help to spread the word about this appeal, so even more people can contribute at this critical time. And please do give whatever you can to help families and communities today.
