Key findings: 
  • A total of 5579 HHs were assessed and found to have been devastated by floods in 13 villages in Wulu and Cueibet Counties
  • Crops failure is imminent because of the unprecedented levels of floods which devastated peoples’ farms. This is likely to lead to lack of food in most of the affected locations
  • Schools were used as safe shelters for the IDPs population, this will pose a challenge as schools are reopening
  • Some of the displaced households are surviving by gathering what they can salvage from the gardens. The rains coincided with the harvesting of the groundnut crop and the fast-growing sorghum
  • Motoronyo village with the other 4 clusters of villages nearby had limited access to basic services viz, health, nutrition, food assistance, and WASH. This lack of basic services has worsened their level of vulnerabilities to the shocks of flooding.

  • There is risk of vaccine preventable diseases outbreak such as measles, polio among others due to lack EPI services at Motoronyo village.
