Since late 2017, the northern province of Cabo Delgado in Mozambique has faced ongoing conflict with Islamic militant insurgency, often targeting civilians, with the intent of creating an Islamic state in the natural gas rich province. Access and humanitarian operations in the region has remained a challenge since this insurgency, with the humanitarian situation remaining acute, especially following the impact of Cyclone Kenneth April 2019, leaving 374,000 people in need, of whom an estimated 200,000 are still living in destroyed, damaged homes or makeshift shelters. Cabo Delgado remains the most vulnerable province in Mozambique with complex needs and ongoing security challenges. What has been of particular concern, however, is the surge of attacks that have been seen since March with some of the most severe attacks in May and beginning of June. The numbers of those forced to leave their homes from this conflict is growing as a result. Furthermore, existing humanitarian operations have been hampered with some temporarily halted. We targeted two districts (Montepuez and Chiure) which have experienced growing numbers of displaced people yet do not have resettlement centres or humanitarian aid distributions. This overcrowding and lack of provisions are especially concerning given that Cabo Delgado has the highest number of Covid-19 cases in the country and is currently experiencing a Cholera outbreak. Our response is aiming to reach approximately 3,000 households or 18,000 individuals with the following activities; 1. WASH needs for families, prioritising women and girls (ActionAid) 2. Awareness raising and prevention of Covid-19 (ActionAid & WJR/ADPP) 3. Distribution of essential Shelter items (ActionAid) 4. Prevention of GBV risks and protection concerns (ActionAid). 5. Immediate food needs (WJR/ADPP) 6. Medium-term food security and livelihoods (WJR/ADPP)
