Tearfund says hundreds of thousands now extremely vulnerable as Tropical Storm Dineo ravages Mozambique

The tropical storm which hit Mozambique on Wednesday 15 February will have a long-term impact on thousands of families across the region, according to Tearfund. Tropical storm Dineo swept across the southern coast of the country, severely damaging 20,000 homes and displacing 140,000 people. Currently seven people have lost their lives as a result of the storm, with high winds and heavy rainfall destroying houses, schools, ripped up crops and forced thousands to flee their homes.
