Mozambican gov’t faces shortfall of 15 mln USD to assist displaced citizens


MAPUTO, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) — Mozambique’s National Institute for Disaster Management said Tuesday that it is still in need of 15 million U.S. dollars to assist the people displaced by the armed conflicts in the northern province of Cabo Delgado and the central region of the country.

INGC’s general director Luisa Meque told Radio Mozambique in an interview that the total budget to assist displaced families is 35 million U.S. dollars and that the institute has managed to secure more than 20 million dollars from the cooperation partners.

“We have about 73,000 families in different accommodation centers. We have been creating conditions with shelter, food and nonfood products and other essentials so that they can be settled in the centers,” said Meque.

Terrorist attacks in Cabo Delgado and armed conflicts in the central region of Mozambique reportedly caused the displacement of 368,000 people. Enditem
