The floods have affected 43,000 persons in five regions, posing serious health risks to them. Over 200 cases of cholera, a water-borne disease had been reported over the past three weeks across the region.

OCHA spokesperson Elisabeth Byrs said: "Urgent measures must be taken to control the outbreak of the disease and prevent the spread of other infections caused by contaminated drinking water."
