Since April 2022, 11 municipalities in the La Mojana subregion have suffered new damages because of breaches in the jarillón along the Cara de Gato, Los Arrastres, Santillana and Caño Viloria sectors. Three of four breaches remain open, allowing large amounts of water to enter municipalities and affecting at least 165,895 people (See Table 1). Respectively, 100 per cent and 97 per cent of the municipalities of Sucre and San Benito Abad have been affected, including their urban centres. Per UNGRD's request to the Office for the United Nations Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) on 7 July 2022, it has become necessary to convene a support and cooperation table within the framework of the emergency in the Mojana Subregion to join efforts and thus enable the development and implementation of basic humanitarian assistance lines.
