Friday, January 28, 2011
ACT Alliance has deployed a strong emergency relief team to support survivors of Brazil’s worst disaster in over 35 years. The official number of dead has passed 840, with more than 540 still missing, following heavy rains, severe landslides and floods. Relief workers indicate the total number of dead and missing could exceed 2000. The ACT forum in Brazil is preparing a full appeal.
