Unusually heavy and early rains since October 2007 have caused widespread flooding in Mozambique and localized flooding in many parts of Southern Africa, particularly in Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe. An estimated 449,000 people have already been significantly affected by the flooding, of which 120,000 have been displaced. Immediate life-saving needs include food, water, sanitation, and primary health care services. Support is also needed for the overall coordination and logistics of the humanitarian response across the affected countries.
CIDA's contribution is used to provide support for the overall coordination of the humanitarian response, as part of the UN Southern African Region Preparedness and Response Plan.
