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.
