Suriname: Update on flood relief efforts

At World Wide Help, Angelo Embuldeniya posts a two-part update on the ongoing flood disaster in Suriname from Sharda Ganga, head of Stichting Projekta, an NGO helping to coordinate volunteer relief efforts. “The latest news from Upper Suriname … was that it started raining again. If the rainfall continues, the water is going to rise again,” Ganga reports. The good news: “Nobody can ever say that Surinamese people don't have solidarity. After one radio appeal the phone calls were pouring in.”
