Description : The 23 people fled south to arrive in this town. They first intended to stay with a family, but they were already housing other people who were uprooted by attacks. They instead settled in a dirt-floor classroom of a primary school, along with three other families. They are among the many in northern Mozambique affected by armed violence. Attacks on villages have been recurrent in Cabo Delgado since 2017. The area was also hit by Cyclone Kenneth in April 2019, deepening the suffering of already vulnerable communities.
