On Mozambican Women's Day, celebrated on April 7, the writer and activist, Paulina Chiziane, reminds us that the victims of Cyclone Idai need support.

UNFPA is working to assist victims of the tragedy with interventions to combat gender-based violence, protection of victims of sexual abuse, distribution and dignity kits (with basic items for protection and hygiene for women), and implementation of clinics to care for pregnant women. In Mozambique alone, there are more than 67,000 pregnant women in a situation of extreme vulnerability.
