STORYLINE
In the six weeks since the floods, humanitarian partners reached 164,000 people with humanitarian assistance. Winterisation activities are ongoing to support people whose homes have been lost or damaged.

Early Recovery is already underway. Priority needs include the swift rehabilitation of water and sewage networks, waste management and safer debris removal.

As work to rehabilitate water plants and networks continue, humanitarian partners have significantly scaled up water trucking. Over 152,000 litres of safe drinking water have been delivered.

The situation in collective sites for internally displaced persons (IDPs) remains fluid. About 1,750 people are being monitored in 18 sites. Relocation of people from these sites should reportedly start soon.
