WFP News Footage Shows Airlifts to Flooded Nhamatanda District in Mozambique (For the Media)

WFP high-energy biscuits and water have been airdropped to isolated pockets of people stranded by the floodwaters in flooded areas in Buzi and Chimoio. Distributions of easy-to-prepare fortified food are underway in Beira, Dondo and other flood-affected areas in Sofala and Tete provinces.

The first WFP-run United Nations Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) helicopter arrived in Beira on Wednesday to support rescue and relief operations and another is due to arrive.
WFP satellite imaging suggests that some 1.7 million were in the path of the cyclone and WFP is working with the government and partners to scale up its operations to reach 600, 000 people with immediate food assistance.
