Flooded Togo’s urgent aid appeal
28 Sep 07 | Africa

Togo has issued an urgent international appeal for food and medicine to help deal with flooding that has affected almost half the countries in Africa.

Africa’s flooding crisis will only get worse
Red Cross Red Crescent disasters statistics show a worrying rise in the number of flood emergencies dealt with by volunteers across the African continent. Action must be taken if we want protect the lives and livelihoods of millions. Over the past few years, the number of emergencies that National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies have responded to has risen steeply. Between 2004 and 2006, the number of floods operations in Africa jumped from just five in 2004 to 32 in 2006 and already, by mid September 2007, stood at 42.
