Floods in Southern Africa
February 2008
Extreme rainfall in Mozambique, Zambia, Namibia, Lesotho, Malawi, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe caused severe flooding with devastating consequences. The effects were long-lasting: businesses needed to be rebuilt, homes were constructed, crops were replanted, and children returned to school. Humanitarian Coalition member agencies worked across the affected areas to help and support families and communities.
Population affected: 
200,000
