João Pereira de Araúj, of Rio Branco, Brazil, stands in floodwater up to his neck, 14 March 2015. 'I have seen many floods in my life, but never this high. My home is built on stilts, but now the lower floor is submerged. I look out of the window and see street after street under water – so many homes and shops. All we can do is wait for the water to go down, clean up and continue.' Photo: Gideon Mendel
