싸이클론과 홍수 피해 입은 마다가스카르의 긴급구호

* UNICEF provides emergency relief after cyclones and flooding hit Madagascar * 14 Feb 2007 Voahangisoa is one of 18,000 residents of Madagascar’s capital who has lost almost everything due to recent unprecedented flooding that has displaced over 30,000 people around the country and caused seven deaths. SOT, Voahangisoa Nirina, farmer: “Our home was destroyed by the flood so that’s why now we’re in this tent.” Flooding and damage due to cyclones is not new to Madagascar. In fact, the country has been hit by 38 natural disasters since 1970, making it almost one disaster a year. But this year’s flooding has been the worst to hit the nation’s capital since 1959. SOT, Executive Secretary of the National Aid Council, Jacky Ramandimbiarison: “The problem is not only in Antananarivo, it’s also in the provinces. At this point, we estimate that 90,000 hectares of farmland and rice paddies have been flooded.” This means more than 150,000 families have lost their livelihoods. This is a huge loss for a country where almost 70 percent of the population lives on less than a dollar a day. Fortunately for Voahangisoa and thousands of other families, agencies like UNICEF have provided tents, water and sanitation supplies and blankets to cover their immediate and temporary needs. But in the coming days and weeks, more than 30,000 families around the country will need to find a way to live and eat until the water levels subside and they can think again how to rebuild their lives.
