More than half of Benin flooded, 43 dead, 100k homeless. News is light, NGOs working on a response. Please pray for now ... will get donation info up when available.

A Crisis Management Unit, chaired by the Minister of Interior and Public Security was established and is functional. It encompasses all UN agencies, and NGOs involved in the response namely the Red Cross, Caritas, Plan Bénin and Catholic Relief Service (CRS).
