Aid workers were on Tuesday racing to contain a cholera outbreak in northern Mozambique after a powerful cyclone contaminated water sources and damaged health clinics.
Fourteen cholera cases have been confirmed in northern Mozambique following floods caused by a powerful cyclone that battered the country last week, provincial authorities said Friday.
Victims of the latest cyclone hitting Mozambique face a food shortage, in spite of adequate power and water supply in relocation centers.
Spokespersons from various United Nations agencies express their concerns about the current situation in northern Mozambique, which has been hit hard by Cyclone Kenneth.
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.
