Emergency in Mozambique
Thousands of people have been forced to flee by an escalating insurgency in the Cabo Delgado northern province.
Brutal attacks by armed groups are dramatically increasing. The latest deadly attack in Palma killed dozens and forced thousands to flee on foot or by boat. They arrived in safer towns in distress and traumatized, with very few belongings.
Women and children are the majority of those displaced and the most at risk of violence and abuse. Frequent natural disasters and economic and development struggles are exacerbating the crisis in Cabo Delgado.
UNHCR is on the ground providing lifesaving emergency assistance and protection services to those forced to flee, such as mental health support, prevention and response to gender based violence, shelter materials, sleeping mats, blankets, kitchen sets, buckets, jerry cans and solar lamps.
But the needs are growing by the day, and we need funding to be able to meet those needs.
