Some 20 million people were affected when flooding completely devoured a fifth of the country, an area of 795,000 square kilometres. UNICEF has been working on the front line for the last year providing clean water, sanitation and medical supplies to those most in need. The flooding, one of the largest natural disasters in history, has seen UNICEF provide –

  • Clean water to 4.5 million people every day
  • Education facilities to 100,000 children
  • 9 million vaccinations against measles and polio for children
