Abstract: This case study from the IFRC details their Disaster Relief and Emergency Fund Operation in Burundi, 2011. Five days of heavy downpour in the last week of March 2011 had severe consequences for the residents of Ngagara, Cibitoke and Kinama, three impoverished and densely populated suburbs of Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi. The flooding severely affected these areas known for high poverty and weak infrastructure. Approximately 305 families (1,500 people) lost their homes and belongings and had to be relocated to a temporary camp. The flooding led to a rapid increase in cholera cases, prompting the Government and the BRC to quickly respond to affected families and treat and prevent additional cases of cholera and other waterborne diseases in the heavily populated area.
