(B2) A Royal Air Force A400M brought about 20 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Mozambique for people affected by Cyclone Idai
Another plane chartered by the United Kingdom shuttles between Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, and Beira, a city in the region most affected by the cyclone.
At least 17.400 houses were completely destroyed by the cyclone and the floods that hit Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi. According to the UN, 350.000 people are threatened by rising waters in urban and rural areas.
Many villages and landmarks were submerged by the floodwaters, blocking all ground rescue missions and making the delivery of aid by air even more necessary.
