New Footage Shows Aftermath of Cyclone Kenneth and WFP Response (For the Media)

The World Food Programme has begun distributing assistance to communities affected by Cyclone Kenneth, which struck north-eastern Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado province on Thursday, 25 April – the strongest tropical storm ever to hit the country – causing widespread destruction and displacement.
To date, WFP has provided food assistance to around 1.3 million people struggling to get back on their feet after the devastation wrought by Cyclone Idai less than six weeks ago. Although floodwaters have receded in most areas it affected, access is still a challenge as infrastructure was severely compromised. This second cyclone is an additional blow for the people of Mozambique and bound to complicate the humanitarian response.
