Gambia: More Villages Suffer Windstorm Crisis


Jarra Bureng village in the Lower River Region was attacked by a heavy rain and windstorm recently, destroying more than 40 houses.

The rain brought down many trees in the area and a lot of food items and properties were misplaced.

A native of the village said that the rain has made a serious destruction in the village and has caused the lives of people living in the village very difficult.

Therefore the people have made an appeal to the government, Red Cross, National Disaster Management Agency, NGOs and individual philanthropists to come to their aid especially considering those whose houses were destroyed.
