More than 330,000 children homeless in Mozambique conflict


More than 732,000 people have been displaced by violence with more than 335,000 children made homeless in Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado province due to terror attackss,the UN’s refugee agency, UNHCR, has said.

They make up almost half of the number of those forced to flee.

Thousands of families have sought refuge in the provinces of Nampula, Niassa and Zambézia due to the insecurity.

The UNHCR says more needs to be done to help these people but some of them are hard to reach.

“Despite the efforts of the authorities and the humanitarian community, the needs of the displaced considerably outweighs the capacity for assistance available from the government and humanitarian agencies.” It said in a statement.

The majority of those displaced do not have identification documents hindering their access to services and their freedom of movement.
