BEIRA - More than two months after Cyclone Idai hit Mozambique, at least 400 children in the worst-affected province of Sofala are still living separated from their parents as an effect of the storm, according to a new assessment by Save the Children.
Nick Finney, Save the Children's Response Team Leader in Mozambique, said:
“Our assessment team came back from Matemo Island yesterday and painted a grim picture. They say the island has been destroyed. The hospital, the mosque and the bank are the only buildings left standing.
29 April, PEMBA - Save the Children is calling on the international community to commit additional resources to the emergency relief efforts in the wake of Cyclone Idai and Cyclone Kenneth, which have battered parts of Mozambique, Tanzania and Malawi and left hundreds of thousands homeless.

PEMBA, 28 April – In the wake of Cyclone Kenneth, torrential rain continues to lash Cabo Delgado in northern Mozambique causing flash flooding and leaving thousands of children and adults without access to desperately needed emergency supplies, Save the Children said today.
