According to local authorities, more than 10,000 people (2.650 families) have been affected by floods in the Ayapel region. These families have lost everything they had: crops, animals, homes. Many of these families live in precarious shelters where they are at risk of hunger, desease and violence. Rains continue to affect the region so the issue will affect more families.
