These less fortunate are looking for food and opportunities for their golden future, how unlucky theyare………..now they are watching landslide and floodChallengesThe affected area is geographically scattered and remote therefore difficult to access.This caused delays in delivery and distribution of the materials. During the first few days,assessments, rescue and relief operations were hampered in the affected areas due to thepartial or complete breakdown in communication systems and transportation networksand the area was inaccessible due to the continuing heavy rainfall; however, the situationhas improved as floodwater levels receded in most of the affected areas.
