Since October 2017, the northern province of Mozambique, Cabo Delgado has been suffering violent attacks from an armed group. Over 2020, these attacks grew in strength and brutality - leaving a tremendous psychological impact on communities.

While they have expanded their capacity over the last months, MSF says their presence is still limited and only addresses a fraction of the needs.
