Violence by armed groups has uprooted more than 250,000 people since 2017 in Cabo Delgado. So far, most of the displaced are hosted by relatives or friends in more stable areas.
Almost 5,000 people are being housed in the emergency facility in Kara Tepe with capacity for 8,000 people, while works are ongoing. The site was set up by Greek authorities with the support of UNHCR.
UNHCR has received just 49% of the $9.1 billion required for its global operations this year. The consequences are devastating in low- and middle-income countries, which host more than 85% of refugees.
In six months of COVID-19 response, UNICEF has trained more than 2,800 community health workers, installed more than 9,000 hand-washing points, and reached 7.5 million people via radio and television.
