To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, what assistance her Department is providing to Mozambique as a result of cyclone Idai.
26 March 2019
DFID is providing up to £22 million of additional UK support to the people affected by the devastating floods in Southern Africa. UK aid is supporting the World Food Programme to feed 400,000 people in Mozambique for two weeks by distributing emergency food and food vouchers for people to use at local markets. We have sent life-saving relief supplies: tents and thousands of shelter kits that have now landed in Mozambique. We will continue to monitor the situation very closely, and the UK stands ready to provide further support if needed.
