After cyclone Idai: The worst we've seen yet

After the cyclone, "Idai" to come and help, only painfully slow in the Region. Because roads and bridges is destroyed, it is almost impossible to reach the affected people. Helpers expect the worst.

the first light of day the military launched the helicopter. After you collect the injured and people who have been waiting for six days to rescue. On trees, on rooftops, on hills that have become Islands, persevere.

Alone yesterday were placed 167 people in the city of Beira. The hospital is partially destroyed and totally overloaded, because so many people are there. This is not all, says Jens Windahl Pedersden of the aid organization "Doctors without borders": "The hospital of Beira has already treated more than 1000 wounded." The main concern was that because of all the Floods, now disease spread. "A Central concern is that there is no access to clean drinking water. The worst we have seen yet."

bridges and roads are destroyed

After all, the airport works in Beira, but there is no electricity in the city. The telephone network is not working, petrol is scarce. But it is clear already now: The city and the infrastructure will almost have to be completely rebuilt, because Beira is a debris field. "The majority of the houses collapsed," says a resident. "95 to 97 percent of unstable houses, which had been built with unsafe materials."

Mozambique is one of the poorest countries in the world and is in need of any help. Not now of several pages, but only very sparsely, because there are not enough helicopters. Simply reaching the people in need of help, due to the destroyed roads and bridges is almost impossible.
