Challenge

Millions of people have had to flee their homes, and they are now struggling to keep their families healthy under difficult and crowded conditions. Many - including children under five - are at high risk of contracting deadly waterborne diseases.

Solution

The best way to reduce the risk that the flooding disaster will be followed by a public health emergency is to ensure everyone has access to clean water and sanitation. Oxfam is delivering water, purification materials and soap, and building latrines

Long-Term Impact

Relief must go hand in hand with a serious commitment to rehabilitation and recovery. Oxfam will assist in the recovery effort for years to come.
