Plymouth woman's aid mission to help flood victims
AN aid worker has flown to Africa to help families effected by the worst flooding in the area for 100 years.
Ex-Devonport High School for Girls student Laura Jepson, from Tamerton Foliot, pictured above, has flown to Niger with ShelterBox to respond to the needs of thousands of people following extreme flooding over the past month that has left many homeless. Ms Jepson, 28, said: "The River Niger in Niamey is at least two metres higher than normal so it has breached its banks spreading up to 200 metres inland in places. Families had built along the riverbanks and planted rice crops which have now all gone. Many villages are completely covered by water and can't be seen."
To date, the floods have destroyed 14,000 homes and 7,000 crop fields across the country leaving many of the poorest families without shelter and food.
