Vooruitgang: Finalisation
Budget: € 40000
Looptijd: 2019-10-01 - 2020-01-31


Heavy rainfall in Senegal has caused extensive damages in
Rufisque and Guédiawaye departments in Dakar Region and
Kaolack department in the Region of the same name (See
annex for map of affected areas). Starting on 10 September
2019, the rains continued through to 17th but by 15 and 16
September, the cumulated flood waters started causing
widespread flooding in Dakar and Kaolack regions. The flooding has led to widespread destruction of livelihoods,
as farms fields have been washed away. About 408 persons
(about 46 households) were obliged to flee their houses and
seek safety in dry places. The Senegalese Red Cross
Society (SRCS) in collaboration with local authorities
conducted a rapid assessment on 17 September 2019. Senegal
