    WFP News Footage Shows Arrival of WFP Helicopters, Aerials in Beira, Mozambique (For The Media)

    The World Food Programme stepped up distributions in and around Beira on Wednesday, with more airdrops of high-energy biscuits (HEBs) to isolated pockets of people stranded by the floodwaters and the delivery of easy-to-prepare fortified food to displaced families sheltering in schools and other public buildings in the town of Dondo, 45 kilometers north east of the port city. An MI-8 transport helicopter contracted by the WFP-run United Nations Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) arrived in Beira on Wednesday to support rescue and relief operations – the first of three due there this week.

    WFP News Footage Shows Aftermath of Cyclone Idai in Beira, Mozambique (For the Media)

    The World Food Programme is rushing food and other assistance to large numbers of desperate people stranded by rapidly rising flood waters in Mozambique – a major humanitarian emergency that is getting bigger by the hour. A WFP staff member who flew over the area that has been inundated spoke of “inland oceans extending for miles and miles in all directions”. Assessing the extent of the damage and needs remains a huge challenge and WFP is using drones and satellite mapping to conduct assessments so that people in need can be identified and reached.
