Flood victims in four wards of Agwata Town Council, Dokolo district have been hit by serious hunger.

Tony Obel, the LCIII chairman of Agwata Town Council cited the most affected areas as Kacung Eastern and Western wards, Amuda Eastern ward as well as Tetugo A ward.

He attributed the hunger being experienced in these areas to destruction of crops by recent floods from Lake Kwania.

Last month, the government through the Office of the Prime Minister, distributed 10 tons of beans and 20 tons of maize flour to the flood victims in Agwata Town Council.

Victory Outreach Ministries also donated relief food to those affected by the floods.
