“The food is going”: Teachers stranded in cyclone-hit Mozambique

Cyclone Kenneth barrelled into the province of Cabo Delgado last week, knocking out power at the School for Teachers of the Future, damaging 11 college buildings and cutting roads linking to the main city of Pemba.

Like thousands of people across the region, Parivos and around 80 live-in students and staff are now stranded at the site in the district of Quissanga. Life now is kind of difficult, he told Reuters by mobile phone. At the end of the week, maybe the food is going … finished.

Almost a week after Kenneth struck with storm surges and 280 kph (174 mph) winds, aid workers say many remote areas and small islands are still waiting for supplies.
