By early March, the death toll due to floods, house collapse and lightning in the country had risen to 160 with 134 deaths recorded in Zambézia province. At the onset of the emergency, the displaced were hosted in accommodation centres such as schools and churches. Most of them have since been transferred to transit/resettlement centres. Given the significant level of destruction, particularly in Zambézia province, the Humanitarian Country Team called upon the humanitarian community to respond with immediate support to the Government. The Logistics Cluster, through lead agency WFP, is assisting the Government where requested and is supporting the Government and humanitarian community with logistics services, coordination and information sharing.   Mozambique Local Floods Logistics Tue, 03 Mar 2015 17:29:24 +0000 WFP 645478 at UN Mozambique: Delivering As One UN Mozambique: Delivering As One WFP in Action Mozambique English Local Africa Video stories Fri, 13 Feb 2015 14:44:23 +0000 WFP 645195 at One Woman's Story From The Mozambique Floods Until the floods came, Esperança Gonçalves (34) had been living a quiet life, running her shop and earning enough to feed her family of six in Mocuba, Quelimane province, northern Mozambique.
