Mozambique: improving access to housing and health for displaced people

The recent attacks in different districts of the northern province of Cabo Delgado and the ones occurred in Niassa province in December 2021 once again forced thousands of people to leave their homes for safer areas, just as the rainy season was about to begin. The COVID-19 pandemic in the country and the region is also a cause for concern.

In response to the crisis in Mozambique, the ICRC is scaling up its activities in the country and strengthening capacities jointly with the Mozambique Red Cross Society (CVM) to continue to assist and protect people in need.

We continue to distribute much-needed emergency relief provisions and provide livelihood support to displaced and host communities in regions affected by the conflict in northern Mozambique, while remaining flexible and quick in our response. In addition to assistance and improved access to basic needs such as health care and water, one of our key priorities is putting people separated by the conflict in contact with their relatives.
