Rubble and tent villages in every direction. Mountains of trash with no place to go. A stench that makes your stomach turn.
Canals full of stagnant, disease-filled water. Thirsty livestock and nesting mosquitoes competing for the same dirty water.
A denuded landscape with hardly any nutrient-rich soil left to retain the precious water needed to support replanting.
Millions of people with limited or no access to basic amenities like clean water, safe shelters, electricity and toilet facilities.
My heart sinks.
