The World Bank has increased emergency support for the three southern African countries affected by a devastating cyclone that killed hundreds in March to $700 million, the lender said on Friday.
Victims of the latest cyclone hitting Mozambique face a food shortage, in spite of adequate power and water supply in relocation centers.
The UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres – in a statement – called on the international community for additional resources that are critical for the response to the both cyclones in the immediate, medium and longer term.
The United Nations will grant Mozambique and the Comoros Islands $13 million in emergency funds to help provide food and water and repair damage to infrastructure, the organisation said late on Sunday, after the second cyclone in a month slammed into the region.
Officials in Mozambique say serious flooding has begun in the north of the country following Cyclone Kenneth which hit the region on Thursday killing five people.
