Cholera cases create a new danger for children in the cyclone Idai-ravaged areas of Mozambique. There will be another disaster if cholera spreads.
Cyclone Idai, which made landfall in Mozambique over two weeks ago, is one of the worst weather-related catastrophes in Africa in recent times. It left a long trail of death and destruction in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi, and the flooding and contaminated water caused by the storm pose a huge threat to survivors, including thousands and thousands of children.
Save the Children’s Regional Director, Jeremy Stoner said:
"Save the Children is deeply concerned by emerging reports from Gaza Ministry of Health and news that a 17-year old boy wasshot in the face and killed at the Gaza perimeter fence today. The full circumstances of the incident are not yet known."
