Flooding has worsened in parts of Cambodia after further heavy rain in the country
Cambodia’s National Committee for Disaster Management said that flooding that began in early October has now affected over 240,000 people in 71 districts of the country. The floods have been devastating for the community and their water system. At least 20 people have lost their lives.
Almost 60,000 houses have been damaged, and over 26,000 people from nearly 8,000 families evacuated. Thousands of hectares of rice and other crops have also been damaged.
On October 21, 2020 Prime Minister Hun Sen visited Cambodian citizens affected by the flood in Banteay Meanchey Province.
Two Watergen Gen M units were on hand to provide safe, clean drinking water from-the-air to the people.
