This intervention relates to Emergency Humanitarian Assistance to Flood Victims. This operation was designed because of the torrential rains of mid-April to mid-May 2009 caused serious floods in some regions of Comoros. About 560 homes were destroyed, directly affecting an estimated 3,000 persons. Furthermore, the number of cases of malaria and water-borne diseases has doubled in several administrative districts. Given the scale of the disaster and its consequences, the Government requested assistance from its development partners as well as those of donor organizations such as the Bank. The emergency humanitarian assistance should cover two components, namely: (i) multi-facetted health assistance to the population geared toward providing health care; (ii) education of children aged below twelve and distribution of school kits to all affected primary schools; and (iii) procurement of essential food items.
The main objective of the proposed emergency humanitarian assistance is to respond to the urgent and immediate needs of the country’s flood victims. Specifically, it will entail preventing the escalation of cases of malaria, cholera and other transmissible diseases among flood victims, facilitating the return of children aged below twelve to school and improving the nutritional status of vulnerable groups.
The main beneficiaries of the operation are the direct flood victims, notably children and women representing 3000 displaced persons.
