11:34 pm
measures he can't understand why some still doubt the existence of climate change. to have to come and leave our life. maybe they're living another kind of life but the feeling be askin what we have done here we've decided to do understand that climate change is a problem. they have been in flooding once they've been in the heavy wind that's what we have seen no definitely do feel india scheme that something bad is happening and that's called climate change. in the meantime and worries about the future about his house and. his family. if i were. you afraid to live in you yeah i am but i can do it because my father was here in
11:35 pm
the wilds he must know we lived here and we know the day by day possibility the war anyhow the place so we are here. today and we have prayed. if you could afford it. you would have moved a long time ago away from the water's edge ok let's go over to beirut now if they'll pinto is heading up operations for the red cross is a psycho and a diet response welcome to day w africa for the hall and most of the money that's raised at the stone a conference is going towards rebuilding infrastructure but perhaps tell us how desperate the humanitarian situation is as we speak. thank you thank you for that question because it's true that there are you know a lot of impact on infrastructure here roads breaches hospitals are being damaged but we should not forget the human side of it and today see some people after 2 months see didn't receive some 1st assistance that's one of the thing that's right
11:36 pm
