The Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD), in co-ordination with the Standing Committee for Rescue, Relief and Humanitarian Assistance, has sent a relief aircraft to the affected areas, to deliver 32 tonnes of supplies including medicine, food, baby milk, tents, and other relief materials.

The Fund works also in co-ordination with the World Food Programme (WFP) to deliver food baskets to persons in desperate need in submerged and severely damaged areas, including cereals, pulse food, vegetable oil, soybean meal, ready-to-eat food and high-energy biscuits.

Qatar has expressed its deepest condolences over the loss of lives, and expressed its commitment to stand in solidarity with Mozambique in overcoming this humanitarian crisis, wishing the people of Mozambique further progress and prosperity.

Tropical cyclone Idai hit several provinces and districts in Mozambique, including Sofala, Zambezia, Tete, Nyasa, Manica and Inhambane, causing widespread devastation, killing at least 600 people, and leaving several injured and stranded.

The population is suffering also from widespread food shortage and lack of medicines caused by this humanitarian disaster.
