Bahci said that although the waters of the Nile River have receded, there are still many regions that are flooded and there are still places that have not received aid.

121 people died due to the floods.

According to Sudan’s Interior Ministry data, 121 people lost their lives in the floods caused by the severe rains that have been continuing for many months.

More than 100.000 homes are totally or partially destroyed by the floods.
