DAILY FLASH

Burkina Faso – Attacks on civilians (ECHO FLASH 27 May 11:09:18 AM)

  • On 25 May, more than 50 inhabitants of Tambarga and Madjoari were deliberately killed by non-state armed actors near Singou (Pama Commune, East region) while attempting to escape the their village which is under blockade since February.
  • Direct targeting of civilians as well as of vital basic infrastructures is significantly increasing in the Northern and Eastern regions of Burkina Faso. There were more than 246 civilians casualties since the beginning of 2022 (ACLED) and at least 32 water and sanitation facilities have been hit by non-state-armed groups (NSAG), affecting almost 300,000 people.
  • In Burkina Faso, almost 10% of the population is currently forcibly displaced. The conflict generates multi-sectorial humanitarian needs. Only 15% of the 2022 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) has been financed so far.

Suriname - Severe flooding (ECHO FLASH 27 May 11:09:18 AM)

  • Due to heavy rainfall in the interior and southern areas of Suriname, the government declared several districts as disaster areas on Wednesday 25 May.
  • Rising waters caused by heavy flooding resulted in a number of major challenges in the southern part of the country. Many of the roads used to access the affected villages have been damaged and access to some areas can only be done by aerial means or boats.
  • Electrical and water purification plants built close to the river are now under water and severely damaged. Schools are not accessible, food security is being threatened due to crop losses and water and waste management is a concern. Relocation of affected families is ongoing in other villages or to higher areas.
  • The weather forecast indicates that there is a high risk of further flooding due to continuing moderate to intense rainfalls.

Floods and flood warnings during the last 24 hours reported by national services (ECHO FLASH 27 May 11:09:18 AM)
