"Help us to help. S.O.S for Pogue, Bojaya. Children, women, and adults affected by yesterday's flood require your help. The meme reads, "Heavy flooding haunts communities in Bojaya. Pogue was evacuated in the face of the great danger caused by the voracious increase in the flow of river water. There are many children, women, and adults at risk."
This is the second time this year that the inhabitants of Bojaya and Choco have been affected by floods, after those that occurred in January. The community expects the Ivan Duque administration to alleviate the situation by actions such as relocating villagers to safe areas.
According to local media, an official commission went to the site to assess the damage, provide support to the victims, and make aid feasible. However, there is no response yet.
More rainfall is expected due to the beginning of the rainy season. This circumstance aggravates the situation of the Bojaya inhabitants, who are under threat from armed groups and vulnerable to the COVID-19 due to lack of efficient health care.
