Mozambique Cyclone Idai: One Year After (14 March 2020)

One year on from Cyclone Idai's landfall on 14 March 2019, more than 1.8 million people across central Mozambique have received life-saving assistance. Despite remarkable achievements, living conditions in affected areas remain precarious. Heavy rains and flooding since December 2019 have worsened the situation, affecting 72,800 people, damaging over 4,000 shelters in resettlements sites set-up for people displaced by Cyclone Idai, and causing loss of crops amidst an already fragile food security situation. Continued humanitarian assistance is critical to save lives and alleviate suffering while
livelihoods are restored and communities recover. Yet, the Humanitarian Response Plan for Mozambique is less than 50 per cent funded. Many partners are having to scale back activities and more funding is urgently required.
