The Government of Japan on Tuesday announced it would offer support worth 10.4 million Euros to three countries affected by Cyclone Idai.
The money will be used to provide food, shelter, coordination of camps and the early recovery of social and economic fabric through three international organisations, including the World Food Program (WFP), the Japanese government announced in a statement.
Food support is expected to reach 350,000 people, and around 27,000 people will gain access to safe drinking water.
Meanwhile, aid from various parts of the world continues to reach central Mozambique.
In response to an appeal launched by Caritas Mozambicana, Caritas Portuguesa has raised about EUR 347,600 for the Emergency Response Plan of Caritas International, which is coordinating all actions of the international network in Mozambique.
The support plan, to be implemented by June 2019, provides for direct support to 27,500 people, with an overall budget of EUR 1.9 million.
Cyclone Idai caused 603 deaths in Mozambique, 344 in Zimbabwe and 59 in Malawi.Source: Rádio Moçambique
