Description : They were separated in the attack and were thankfully reunited unharmed, but they left all their belongings behind.The family of six is now staying with a man, that they met upon arriving in Macomia. The man is now hosting eight people who have been displaced by the violence, doubling the number of people in his one-room house from nine to 17, most of them children. They are among the many being affected by armed violence in northern Mozambique. 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.
