Mozambique: The conflict is intensifying and the trauma is taking its toll

"In the jungle they come across dead people – relatives or neighbours from their villages who have been murdered, their bodies dismembered and their heads cut off. They also see people who have died of hunger or thirst. They tell you that they can't get these images out of their heads."

Nearly 670,000 people have been forced from their homes since conflict broke out in northeastern Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado province in 2017 between non-state armed groups and the army. MSF medical coordinator Patricia Postigo describes the situation in and around the city of Montepuez, where some 50,000 people have sought refuge from the violence.
