The OCHA, in its most recent update, reported that approximately 57,000 people were forced to evacuate due to floods triggered by torrential rains in various regions of the East African nation. These floods have caused extensive damage to homes, public infrastructure, and farmland, exacerbating difficulties for the impacted communities.
