Attacks continue to cause displacement

Learn about the ongoing conflict and violence in Mozambique and how you can support

People affected by the Cabo Delgado conflict in Mozambique need your support today. This is an incredibly fast-growing displacement crises. In less than a year the number of people fleeing their homes increased from 172,000 to over 732,000 people. As the conflict expanded many people were forced to flee multiple times.

VIOLENCE AND DESTRUCTION


WHAT IS HAPPENING IN MOZAMBIQUE?

In October 2017, an extremist group launched attacks on the northern province of Cabo Delgado.

The group has carried violent attacks on government forces, military installations, and now on innocent civilians.

In Cabo Delgado, nearly 1 in every 3 people are now internally displaced. The area of the attacks has spread, forcing people to flee further and further. This has caused many to be displaced multiple times as the place they fled to became unsafe as well.

While the government works to restore peace, the situation remains volatile and dangerous for the families caught up in the violence and destruction.

ATTACKS ON CIVILIANS CONTINUE


WHO IS AFFECTED BY THE CONFLICT IN MOZAMBIQUE?

Sporadic attacks continue in Cabo Delgado and the surrounding provinces. Families in these areas have been seen destruction, villages burned, and violence they could never have imagined.

So far 785,000 people have been forced to flee their homes due to this violence. Children make up 49% of all those that have fled.

Displaced people in Northern Mozambique are in urgent need of basic shelter and lack the most critical household items.

The situation is desperate and chaotic. More and more people arrive by foot, bus or boat every day across eight districts, making living conditions even more crammed and uninhabitable.

Communities bearing the brunt of this conflict need emergency shelter as soon as possible.
