At least 103,305 people were displaced from their homes in the last few years by climate shocks in Burundi where growing floods, storms and landslides have produced a new displacement crisis, said Save the Children.

Climate shocks, rather than conflicts, are the major cause of internal displacement in this landlocked East African nation, which is overwhelmingly rural.

An estimated 7.200 of the displaced – or 7% of the total – are babies under a year old.

Arielle, a teen whose house was swallowed mid-night by rising waters in the lake, told Save the Children that she has had to battle to pay $1.20 a day for carrying and stacking the bricks.

Displaced farmers told the organization the flood disasters had gotten worse in the last few years.
