Mali – Floods

Vooruitgang: Finalisation
Budget: € 80000
Looptijd: 2019-09-05 - 2020-01-05


Mali, which is already heavily affected by various crises
(food insecurity, security, political tensions, etc.),
experienced heavy rainfall starting on 24 August 2019.
By 27 August, the previous three consecutive days of
rainfall began causing extensive damages in in Koulikoro,
Timbuktu, Kidal, Mopti and Ménaka regions of Mali. From
the initial assessments conducted by Mali Red Cross
Society (MRCS) on 28 August 2019, at least 6,474
people or 1,729 households have been affected by the
floods with severe consequences on the livelihoods of
families as food stocks have been washed away by the
flood water. Some 845 houses are reported to have been
destroyed, leaving hundreds of people homeless. They
are currently staying in some schools and host families. Affected people face food insecurity, due to the
destruction of farm fields and loss of cattle resulting from
the floods. Besides, the risk to see waterborne diseases
increasing is high, as most wells have been submerged
by the flooding. This situation has led to very limited
access of water in the affected areas. It is also feared
that stagnant waters may favour the proliferation of
mosquitoes and lead to an increase in malaria cases
Therefore the affected people do need support in the
following areas:
• Food insecurity
• Health Mali


• Food insecurity
• Health


Number of people to be assisted: 4,000 people or
