photos - floods - international assistance

The USS Kearsage from the American Navy is providing assistance for transporting humanitarian aid. The helicopters from this ship are being used to fly in food to the flooded areas of the country. Several bodies were found in the sea.

Drinking water is in short supply as well as food. Here a shipment of water is unloaded to prepare for distribution to the people.

The UN is providing food assistance and securing the food distribution sites.

People are desperate and people push their way through to find food first at the distribution sites.

Barbed wire is set up to control the hungry people. These series of photos were all taken from the internet
