Vietnam and Cambodia worst flooding

More than 5 million people have been affected as Vietnam and Cambodia face the worst flooding in decades. Throughout October, seasonal monsoon followed by a series of tropical storms wreaked havoc on the area, leading to flooding and landslides. On Oct. 10-13, Tropical Storm Linfa hit these two countries with as much as 90 inches of rain in some areas on top of the monsoons’ 14 inches. It was followed by Tropical Storm Nangka on Oct. 14-16, which added an additional 14-16 inches, then by Tropical Depression Ofel and Typhoon Saudel. Now, residents are bracing for Typhoon Molave.

In advance of the pending landfall of Typhoon Molave on Wednesday, Oct. 28, Vietnam intends to evacuate 1.3 million people. Forecasters expect wind speeds to reach more than 80 mph (equivalent to a Category 1 hurricane).

Critical Needs:

Food and Nutrition: We anticipate that about 160,000 people will need food over the next several months. In addition, nearly 100,000 children under two and 100,000 pregnant women will need nutrition supplements.

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH): Water filtration and a supply of clean drinking water is also needed. Hygiene kits and other sanitation supplies are also required.

Home Repair and Clean Out: Depending upon the level of damage, there will be a need to muck out homes and provide mold remediation. Other homes will need to be repaired and some will need to be rebuilt.

Cash Assistance: Supporting economic recovery through the provision of direct cash assistance can help move families faster towards rebuilding their lives.

Agricultural Assistance: To help rebuild the agricultural industry, crop and rice seeds are needed as well as farming tools and supplies.

Miscellaneous Supplies: Households will also need cooking supplies, blankets and mosquito nets, among other essentials.
