Cyclone Freddy made its passage over Mozambique where government declared a state of “red alert” - expediting operations to tackle severe flooding and other effects of this tropical storm that it left in its wake. The cyclone moved away only to return for a second time.
Inhambane and Sofala provinces, Mozambique
With the emergency status of the situation behind us, we are now working to reduce vulnerability and enable self-sustainability of the affected population to withstand future disasters.
When Cyclone Freddy made landfall in Mozambique, ForAfrika was ready and waiting to respond. The heavy rains, wind and flooding damaged houses, schools, clinics and crops. Floods washed roads away, leaving a number of villages stranded. Thousands of families have lost their food, homes and means of income.
