China Road and Bridge Corporation makes emergency repairs on Mozambique’s main road
After Cyclone Idai struck the country late last week, over 150 lives have been lost, 90% of Beira has been demolished and other countries like Zimbabwe and Malawi have been affected by its wrath.
President Filipe Nyusi in a national address on radio said on Monday, that Cyclone Idai may have killed more than 1,000 people in Mozambique.
The local municipality in Beira continues to monitor the movement of the cyclone. Daviz Simango, Beira’s mayor, urged the population living near the coast to be on alert. The municipality has also set up safe zones and highlighted that the public should look out for emergency vehicles and allocated buildings to find shelter, and to seek medical attention if needed.
Due to the scale of the disaster, the Mozambique Red Cross in Beira has already identified shelter, health, water, sanitation and hygiene as main priorities. In an effort to support the teams on the ground, Hollard Seguros has made a donation to support the people in Beira.
