Another year, another flood.  For the third year in a row now there is flooding across several Southern Africa countries.  In Southern Angola, Cunene Province is under water again and the now-ubiquitous tented camps swell in the provincial capital Ondjiva as people arrive in hope of finding some assistance from the government and NGOs like Oxfam.

Une autre année, une autre inondation.  Pour la troisième année de suite, des inondations ont frappé plusieurs pays de l’Afrique Australe. Dans le Sud de l’Angola, la province Cunene est à nouveau sous les eaux et les camps de tentes dominent maintenant le paysage de la capitale provinciale  d’Ondjiva, les gens arrivant dans l’espoir d’être secourus par le gouvernement ou par des ONG comme Oxfam.

Otro año, otra inundación. Por tercer año consecutivo se están produciendo inundaciones en varios países del sur de África. La provincia de Cunene, en el sur de Angola, está de nuevo bajo las aguas, y los ya omnipresentes campamentos provisionales se multiplican en la capital de la provincia, Ondjiva, a donde se desplazan las personas con la esperanza de encontrar alguna ayuda del gobierno o de las ONG como Oxfam.
