STORYLINE
The United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR) said it was preparing to send life-saving relief material in an emergency airlift to Mozambique on Tuesday (26 Mar), the first of a series of humanitarian shipments from its global stockpile in Dubai to help survivors of the Cyclone Idai.

UNHCR said it was mobilizing emergency shelter and core relief items from global stockpiles to assist some 30,000 people in dire need in Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Malawi, including refugees, their host communities, and the local population displaced by Cyclone Idai. The refugee agency said the affected population was in dire need of basic relief supplies, food, health services and shelter.

The UNHCR relief items will include family tents, shelter plastic tarpaulins, sleeping mats, cooking sets and utensils, Jerry cans, buckets, mosquito nets, solar lamps and soap.

In Mozambique, the most affected country, the government has declared a national emergency as the death toll from the effects of the Cyclone climbs above the reported 242 and is expected to exceed 1,000. The country is currently home to some 25,000 refugees – who have fortunately not been directly affected.
