Rainy season in Liberia always brings a lot of sogginess, but this year extra heavy rains brought a devastating amount of water. A river near CAM’s base overflowed, flooding hundreds of houses and rendering at least 4,000 people homeless. Houses made of mud and sticks are common in Liberia, and when floodwaters entered these houses, the walls deteriorated quickly. The flooding also damaged crops and washed out bridges. CAM plans to distribute food, roofing metal, and cement to Liberians affected by the flood.
