Cyclone Idai: UNICEF Head In Zimbabwe For Assessments

The United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef) yesterday sent its regional director for Eastern-Southern Africa Leila Pakkala to Zimbabwe to assess how the UN body can assist Cyclone Idai survivors.

Pakkala met Vice President Kembo Mohadi yesterday at Munhumutapa Offices in Harare. She said the cyclone had serious impact on Zimbabwe.

It is very clear that the impact of cyclone on Zimbabwe was very serious. Colleagues from the UN family, from Government and civil society organisations are already in a number of locations carrying detailed assessments, but at the same time carrying out support activities in the areas of health, education trying to make sure that communities have access to water, have access to shelter  psycho-social support to those that have been affected is very important. We are here not only looking at the work that is ongoing, but also what more needs to be done and how we can be mobilising inside the country and outside for this humanitarian response.
