More than 600 people died and an unknown number are still missing, while over 1.8 million people need humanitarian assistance.
Concerns persist regarding the likelihood of increased food insecurity and protection risks. All communities in Manica and 80 percent in Sofala province have reported harvesting less than half of their maize crop due to the cyclone 1 .
