Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.

HI, Humanity & Inclusion is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation with no religious or political affiliations operating in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

HI is present in Mozambique since 1986, implementing various projects in humanitarian and development contexts.
On March 14th, Tropical Cyclone Idai made landfall near Beira City, leaving devastating loss of life and large-scale destruction of assets and infrastructure in its wake. The destructive winds came with intensive rainfall. In the following days, entire villages were submerged underwater. Families were separated as they fled the flood waters, while others were trapped on high ground, unable to access basic goods and services for days. Over a hundred thousand of people were displaced, many having to flee with nothing as the waters rose rapidly.
Cyclone Idai has caused a massive displacement of child-headed households, single mothers or elderly-headed households, as well as unaccompanied children, who have been separated from their parents, or have lost their parents in the devastation. As of 12th of April, the Government had identified and registered 41,742 vulnerable people including children, people with disabilities, female-headed households and the elderly who had subscribed in the National Institute for Social Action (INAS) programme for support. 79 children have been reported as unaccompanied and separated in the district of Nhamatanda alone.
