CESVI: Fumigating areas hit by floods

In the aftermath of intense flooding, the stagnant water is an excellent breeding ground for mosquitoes, increasing the risk of the mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue or malaria. After the 2012 rainy season left thousands of houses under water in the Peruvian department of Loreto, one of ECHO partners, Italian NGO CESVI, carried out a fumigation campaign to protect people from diseases.
