Today they’re destitute — surviving on the kindness of friends and support from the World Food Programme (WFP) and other humanitarian partners.  Tamba’s wife Yeabu says the family of six will make the supplies stretch for as long as possible. “I will cook up two cups of rice in the morning, and two in the evening.” The family’s memories of the mudslide are still vivid. As he ran for his life, Tamba was hit on the head by a rock. He fell but managed to pick himself up and keep running. The couple’s young son Kelfala was also injured and fell. But Yeabu gathered him up and carried on. Like many other survivors, they are destitute. For now, they have shelter — a tiny, one-room shop loaned by a friend. “We have nothing: no place to live, no clothes,” says Yeabu, who lost five relatives in the mudslides.
