Thank you for throwing some light on this disaster. The situation is even worse in the villages in the lower Oueme valley. Houses, food reserves and cattle have been washed away. In DEKIN, a village of 10,420 inhabitants in the District of DANGBO, more than one third of the population lost their houses and other belongings. While the next lowland cropping season is fast nearing, these farmers are faced with the challenge of reconstruction and farming without inputs and the needed food items.
