UN helps flood-hit Mozambique

The United Nations has sent a team to assess the damage caused by recent flooding in Mozambique. “The humanitarian community is ready to support the government in the response that is now under way,” said Ndolamb Ngokwey, the global body’s top official in the country. “In recent months we have been working together with the national authorities to establish contingency plans guaranteeing that people affected by the floods are supported in an expeditious manner.” The U.N. mission has joined efforts with Mozambique’s National Disasters Management Institute, the Mozambique Red Cross, and other humanitarian NGOs to determine the emergency needs of 56,000 affected people.
