MSF response to cyclone in Buzi

15 April 2019

The MSF team first reached those stranded in Buzi by helicopter on 25 March and immediately sent teams to support the health center which was badly damaged by the cyclone, and planned to start water and sanitation activities as well as rehabilitating the hospital. On 27 of March, the government officially declared a cholera outbreak in Beira so in order to be ready for a possible outbreak, MSF built a cholera treatment unit. As of today, with water levels dropping, and people slowly starting to return to Buzi (now accessible by road), the risk of someone importing cholera is high and MSF is already treating several cases of acute watery diarrhea which is suspected to be cholera
