In total, 636 localities were affected, some of which have completely disappeared, dozens of houses were completely destroyed, almost half a million agricultural land was ravaged, some 20,000 cattle heads carried away by the waters this year. "The situation is catastrophic for populations who were already faced with chronic food insecurity," deplored a Chadian framework.

For a week, a slow decline has been observed in the country, but hundreds of thousands of people are still grouped on dozens of sites in the capital Ndjaména and in the most affected provinces, Mayo Kebbi, the Western Logone, the tandjilé or the mandoul.

These victims are missing everything today. Less than 30%, of the US $ 70 million necessary to deal with this crisis have already been funded to date.
