    Cholera, the water-born disease, has become a growing problem in Benin after weeks of flooding that devastated two-thirds of the country. The floods, which struck earlier this month, had killed at least 60 people and displaced more than 100,000 others.

    At least 10 cases of Cholera have been reported each day in the West African country since the disaster.

    Much needed aid, including water purification tables, has been distributed by the UN to flood-affected areas to help counter the deadly epidemic.

    Jonah Hull reports exclusively from Cotonou, the country's commercial capital, where many are struggling to gain access to clean water. Aljazeera is the only international broadcaster inside Benin.
