#UpRooted Stories

Spotlight: Mozambique


Thousands of people have been displaced because of the Cyclone.  Mozambique government estimates that 600,000 people will be affected from this cyclone, 260,000 of them children.  The consequences of this cyclone are likely to ruin schools, health facilities, damage water and sanitation infrastructure and impede access to safe water. This will heighten the chance of diseases.

With the partnership and support of the government, UNICEF provides life-saving interventions to help with women and children needs who were impacted by the Cyclone. This reaction includes health, education and protection.
