Brazil donates 100 thousand Euros to support displaced people in Cabo Delgado

Brasil doa 100 mil euros para apoiar deslocados em Cabo Delgado

The Brazilian government donated 100,000 euros to help alleviate food insecurity in Cabo Delgado province, following talks held between the Brazilian foreign minister, Carlos França, and Mozambique's minister of foreign affairs and cooperation, Verónica Macamo Dhlovo.

Brazil will channel resources to the Special Fund of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP) and transferred to the World Food Program (WFP), as a gesture of support to confront the consequences of the terrorist insurgency in that province and to promote development in the region.

Last June, the executive director of WFP, David Beasley, held a meeting in Maputo with the President of the Republic, Filipe Nyusi, expressing the intention to continue to support the country in the face of the humanitarian crisis in Cabo Delgado, where about 800,000 people are displaced due to terrorist attacks.

According to Beasley, quoted by "O País", WFP's ambition is to continue to support people affected by the conflict effectively, but in addition to the armed insurgency, Mozambique faces other challenges that also require the attention of the United Nations agency.
