Dec. 4th 2020, Metuge, Cabo Delgado Province, Mozambique: Children (and their families) at Metuge IDP camp.

In the province of Cabo Delgado in Mozambique, floods and heavy rains are exacerbating the hardship of the people living there - just one year after hurricanes Kenneth and Idai devastated the region. At the same time, violence by armed groups is on the rise. More than 425,000 people have been displaced from their homes in recent months, including 191,000 children. An estimated 28,000 children are suffering from acute malnutrition.

In many East African countries, such as Mozambique, armed conflicts, droughts, floods and plagues of locusts are currently threatening the livelihoods of many families.


04.12.2020, Metuge, Cabo Delgado, Mosambik: Kinder (und ihre Familien) im Metuge Camp für Binnenflüchtlinge.

In der Provinz Cabo Delgado in Mosambik verschärfen Überschwemmungen und starke Regenfälle die Not der dort lebenden Bevölkerung – nur ein Jahr, nachdem die Wirbelstürme Kenneth und Idai die Region verwüstet hatten. Gleichzeitig nimmt die Gewalt durch bewaffnete Gruppen zu. Mehr als 425.000 Menschen wurden in den zurückliegenden Monaten aus ihrem Zuhause vertrieben, darunter 191.000 Kinder. Schätzungsweise 28.000 Kinder leiden an akuter Mangelernährung.

In vielen ostafrikanischen Ländern wie z.B. Mosambik bedrohen derzeit bewaffnete Konflikte, Dürren, Überschwemmungen sowie Heuschreckenplagen die Lebensgrundlagen zahlreicher Familien.
