On the morning of Tuesday the 14 March 2020, Egypt was aggressively attacked by heavy rainfall caused flooding in multiple populated areas, causing massive property damages. More than 1000 houses were totally/ partially demolished by the wild effect of the strong gush of water. Also, extensive areas of agricultural land were destroyed by the effect of the downpours. Means of livelihood and income were negatively impacted. The floods claimed more than 30 human lives including children.
The ACT member (BLESS) is planning on submitting a Rapid Response Funding proposal to ensure that the floods affected persons’ basic needs are met with regards to Shelter/ NFI.
