Madagascar's hungry eat grasshoppers after deadly cyclone
"French charity group Action Against Hunger, which invited AFP to see the extent of the needs of the hurricane's victims, has begun disinfecting contaminated wells with chlorine and has installed a pump system to try to remove the dirty water. "This is an emergency," said Stephane Senia, the group's water programme manager, adding that they are working to restore the wells to their pre-cyclone condition. "So we're not looking to work miracles. In the long term, the wells need to be improved and we need to ensure that they're (built) in non-contaminated areas," he said."
