CYCLONE DINEO RESPONSE
Veronica Zangueu is 13 years old. Since Cyclone Dineo hit her village in the district of Massinga on the coast of Mozambique last week, Veronica and her family have been sleeping under a tree. Not only did the cyclone destroy her home, it also destroyed her school. CARE is helping Veronica and her family by providing them with emergency household items including a tarpaulin, a blanket, a bucket, ground sheets and a mosquito net.
"Now we have materials to help us resolve our problems, and re-begin our life. I am very grateful to CARE for helping us,” said Veronica.
