* Assisting flood victims in Mozambique
* 02 min 24 secs
* 22 Jan 2008


With flood waters rising fast over the vast Zambezi valley in Mozambique, it’s a race against time to rescue thousands of people still stranded. Early and heavy rains in neighbouring countries have left hectares of maize fields under water, arable land lost, homes thatched islands in rivers. Those evacuated by boat are happy just to escape to dry land with a few livestock, anything they could lay their hands on. This family could save only just two sacks of potatoes.

Under a baobab tree, the rescued collapse, relieved and utterly exhausted. At the best of times these people live fragile lives on these plains. Not yet recovered from last year’s floods, some use fragments leftover from previous aid operations to get by.

For now the Mozambican authorities are on top of the aid effort.

SOUNDBITE (Portuguese) Manuel Sinosse, Moz Institute of Disaster Management:
“It is our responsibility to ensure that people have shelter, water and adequate sanitation.”

Some supplies of food aid, latrines, plastic sheeting and cans have been pre-positioned in warehouses and are being distributed, even the smallest helping a hand -- and a head. New supplies too are starting to come in by trucks and boats and getting out to the most inaccessible areas by any means possible.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dominigos Chiconella, UNICEF team leader:
“UNICEF is supporting water provision; we are working with MSF to provide people with safe water. We are working with another implement NGO ‘Amour’ to provide adequate sanitation to people in Baue.”

All have learnt important lessons from previous emergencies, with the UN system working much more as one, but the coming weeks will be the true challenge. With the worst of the rains due only in February, concerns are growing that the dramatic images from last year’s floods in Mozambique could soon be seen again.
