Life after Cyclone Idai

At least 1.6 million children need urgent assistance – in healthcare, nutrition, protection, education, water and sanitation – one month after Cyclone Idai devastated parts of Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe.

UNICEF and its partners continue to respond to the urgent humanitarian needs of children and families. UNICEF actions to date include:

  • Mozambique: UNICEF provided vaccines to successfully immunize 900,000 people against cholera, has begun distribution of 500,000 mosquito nets to protect children from malaria, and helped restore the water supply for 500,000 people in the city of Beira. In the coming weeks, campaigns are planned around measles vaccination, deworming and vitamin A boosters. UNICEF is also supporting the establishment of several health clinics in resettlement areas.
  • Malawi: UNICEF is providing water trucks, toilets and child friendly spaces for evacuation centers, as well as medicines and mobile clinics, education and recreation kits, volunteer teachers, and child friendly spaces in evacuation centers. Since the cyclone hit Malawi, UNICEF has provided safe water to more than 53,000 people and toilets to over 51,000 people.
  • Zimbabwe: UNICEF is distributing hygiene kits, rehabilitating water systems and restoring sanitation facilities; providing vital health and nutrition supplies; and working with partners to deliver psychosocial support to vulnerable children in child-friendly spaces. UNICEF has provided over 60,000 people with critical information to prevent waterborne diseases and launched a cholera vaccination campaign.
