Benin Floods. 


With Unicef.


Hundreds of thousands of people in Benin have been affected by the country's worst flooding in nearly half a century, aid agencies have warned.

An estimated 56 people have been killed and 55,000 homes damaged or destroyed as the west African nation is lashed by rains twice as heavy as usual.

Areas previously thought not to be vulnerable to flooding have been devastated and villages wiped out.
