Palma Fact Sheet (May 2021) - UNFPA Mozambique

More than 60,000 people fleeing Palma following attacks and violence continue to arrive in Nangade, Mueda, Montepuez, and Pemba districts in Cabo Delgado, while thousands of others are believed to be on their way by foot, bus, and boat to safer locations.
As is usually the case in humanitarian crises, women and girls have been among the most impacted by the violence in Palma, as well as throughout the northern provinces, making their health, safety, and protection an even greater concern.
Led by the Government of Mozambique, UNFPA and its implementing partners are supporting displaced women and girls from Palma district and their host communities with vital and timely care and support.
