  • Affected people in Tombek are mainly IDPs from Jonglie while Muni community were affected displaced within their own areas. However, most of them have lost their cereal crop and ground nuts and Bor IDPs have lost everything. This exposes them, especially the vulnerable children, elderly, lactating and pregnant women to malnutrition. Exposure to wild weather, rains and mosquitoes, snakes, crocodiles etc. are a real risk of malaria, upper respiratory tract infections, snake venoms and physical injury or death from crocodile attacks.
  • Lack of clean drinking water and poor sanitation exposes the same population to water borne diseases among them diarrhoea, bilharzia, skin infections etc. The reemergence of guinea worm cannot be ruled out.
  • Basic services in both Muni and Tombek may worsened due to floods and increase in population number since access to Terekeka town has been cut off., there is a functional PHCC in Tombek and PHCU in Muni but no functional markets, schools, and clean water sources.
  • General, floods have negatively affected both IDPs and Muni community and disrupting their livelihood. And drastically affecting households and vulnerable households into further poverty
