Flood in Gambella

Tedla Asfaw

 Mr. Gwayn, the vice president of Gambella Administrative Region of Ethiopia on VOA Amharic today (August 26) called for assistance for more than thirteen thousands of people who are displaced by flood followed more than a week of heavy rain that overflow the tributaries of Baro River and  flood  large areas.

Most of the displaced are around Itang and we should give our support for our people through the humanitarian organizations that are working in the area.

This natural catastrophe is beyond the people and as of now the so called "Federal" government has not delivered any support for the displaced Gambella people.
