Chad UN agency offers assistance after floods strike southeast

About 70,000 Chadians are homeless because of the floods, which follow torrential rains over the past two months, according to Andrej Mahecic, a spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).As many as 150,000 people are classified as affected by the floods, including thousands of refugees living in the region, Mr. Mahecic told journalists in Geneva.Two refugee camps in the southeast, Yarounga and Moula, have been particularly hard hit, with recently cultivated crops and fields wiped out. Many shelters and latrines have also collapsed.Mr. Mahecic said the start of the school year, scheduled for 1 October, may have to be delayed because the refugees have temporarily occupied the schools until they can find new shelter.UNHCR has identified two sites to relocate about 4,000 refugees in the camps, but distributing food and other relief items is proving difficult because the roads are in such poor condition.The agency has provided about 15,000 people across the region with basic survival kits that comprise blankets, plastic sheeting, mosquito nets and bed mats.It is also raising awareness about the importance of basic hygiene practices in the wake of the floods. The collapse of so many latrines means waste may resurface, raising the risk of disease outbreaks.At least 41 Chadians have died in a nationwide cholera outbreak, and malaria is also seen as a potential threat in the region. 17 September 2010The United Nations refugee agency sounded the alarm today about the situation facing thousands of residents of southern and south-eastern Chad, where the heaviest rains in 40 years have destroyed homes and infrastructure, wiped out cropland and cut off access to towns and communities. read more

TimorLeste UN appeal for those displaced by violence is almost funded some

The UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Timor-Leste, Finn Reske-Nielsen, said the support for the displaced persons, who represent 15 per cent of the population of the tiny nation, was “satisfactory for the moment,” but he added that the “lean” season would arrive earlier than usual in September.In a related development, the Secretary-General’s Deputy Special Representative for Timor-Leste, Anis Bajwa, today briefed visiting Australian Prime Minister John Howard on the humanitarian, security and political situation.The UN spokesman said that Mr. Bajwa had thanked the Prime Minister for the security provided by Australian soldiers, who are part of a task force restoring calm in Timor-Leste following the violence that erupted in late April with the firing of 600 striking soldiers, a third of the armed forces.The two men also discussed the role of a new UN mission currently being planned for the tiny country, which the world body shepherded to independence from Indonesia four years ago. The mandate of the small UN Office in Timor-Leste (UNOTIL) runs until 20 August.Further on the humanitarian front, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) says that its joint campaign with the Ministry of Health to vaccinate children against measles will this week visit schools in the capital Dili. The campaign has so far vaccinated more than 12,000 children in several camps set up for the internally displaced.UNICEF also reports that it has supplied six campsites with exercise books, pencils, pens and other stationery so that children can resume their school work. read more
