More than 430 people have been killed with hundreds more missing across southern Africa due to one of the worst tropical cyclones on record.
Cyclone Idai landed in the area last week and has so far caused around 270 deaths in Mozambique, almost 100 in Zimbabwe, 60 in Malawi, 10 in South Africa and 2 in Madagascar.
More than 2.5 million people experienced the direct effects of the cyclone, with hundreds of thousands in need of humanitarian assistance.
In Mozambique, The World Food Programme (WFP) aims to support 600,000 people affected by the cyclone, which struck with wind speeds in excess of 150 kilometres per hour. In Malawi, the UN agency plans to target 650,000 people with food assistance.
Studies of satellite images suggested 1.7 million people were in the path of the cyclone in Mozambique and another 920,000 affected in Malawi, according to WFP.
People in badly-affected areas remain on their rooftops as their homes are submerged by floodwaters, desperately awaiting humanitarian aid.
