Floods leave Boma in need of humanitarian support
By Martha David
Authorities in Boma State have called for urgent humanitarian support after farms were destroyed by floods last Friday.
The Minster of Information in Boma State, David Yak said the communities are in need of humanitarian assistance due to the floods that destroyed their farms and household property.
Speaking to Juba Monitor yesterday, minister Yak said the state government was doing its best to help the situation.
He explained that many people have been displaced and “all the planted crops” have been destroyed by the floods, leaving people in dire need of humanitarian assistance.
“We are requesting the well-wishers to come and rescue the lives of the people in Boma State,” minister Yak appealed.
He said many areas have been affected by the floods including Lilibok, Bebuzen and Lekuangole counties.
Yak added that it was a serious situation that needs to be fixed as soon as possible, saying “lives of the people are at risk.”
“Flood is one of the biggest enemies if we don’t reach to that which means it will continue destroying,” Yak added.
During rainy seasons, many parts of the country experience floods, which displace people.
