Tens of thousands of people continue to flee violence in Cabo Delgado, in northern Mozambique. Last week alone, more than 33,000 Mozambicans fled their homes.
The International Organization for Migration, IOM, released this Tuesday that just last week, more than 33,000 people had to flee their homes to escape insecurity.
According to the UN agency, the number increased fourfold, from 88,000 in January to more than 355,000.
IOM chief in Mozambique, Laura Tomm-Bonde, said that “reports of violence against civilians are deeply disturbing.”
“The IOM team is helping thousands of families, including many with young children, to survive the displacement,” said the official.
But, he said, “the resources available do not cover the extensive humanitarian needs of families who arrive with nothing.”
