WFP News Footage Shows First Airlifts to Flooded Areas in Mozambique (For the Media)

The World Food Programme is rushing food and other assistance to victims of the flooding and cyclone that hit Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe. We have reached 20,000 people already and we are stepping up operations to assist, initially, 600,000 people.

The immense scale of the damage is becoming clearer, but the situation is likely to deteriorate, and the number of people affected is expected to increase as heavy rains are forecast to continue.
Assessing the extent of the damage and needs remains a huge challenge. WFP is supporting the government and the national disaster management agency, INGC, to use drones to locate people in need of assistance.
