Photo Report: A Village Almost Wiped Out By Flood
Located in Gummi local government area of Zamfara state, Northwest Nigeria, Gutsura has a population of about 3,000 people, dominated by the Hausa tribe. Gutsura people thrive on farming.
However, like other communities in Nigeria, Gutsura has its own challenges. The major one is over-flooding. This has made it difficult for the people to demand for the provision of basic amenities. Of what use will it be when the next raining season could wash them all away?
When the flood comes, it exposes the people to diseases, as water gets contaminated, lives and properties, including farm produce worth over nine million naira are destroyed.
Here is a photo report of life in Gutsura, as the people wait for the realization of the millions of naira that has been allocated for their relocation.
