Provision of Logistics and Emergency Telecommunications Support to Humanitarian Emergency Operations in Flood Affected Areas of Mozambique

Heavy rainfall in Mozambique and neighboring countries, beginning in December andcontinuing through January, has caused significant flooding in northern and central parts of Mozambique, particularly in Zambézia, Nampula, Niassa, and Cabo Delgado provinces. Many rivers in these areas have overflowed; of particular concern is the Licungo River which, as of 20 January, had reached its highest levels since 1971. Consequently 144,330 people (32,285 families) have been affected by these floods. In Zambézia province alone 119,564 people (24,278 families) have been affected, of which 50,481 people (11,662 families) are currently being hosted in 49 accommodation centers, located in seven districts out of the total 22 districts in the province.
