Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi has announced the immediate allocation of close to $3.4m (£2.8m) for reconstruction in the aftermath of Cyclone Freddy.
The cyclone made landfall over the weekend for the second time in a month. Mozambique has received more than a year’s worth of rainfall in the past four weeks.
At least 53 people have died while hundreds of thousands are at risk of a humanitarian crisis, according to local agencies.
The government has reduced docking charges for ships carrying emergency products meant for the affected communities.
The president also extended the terms of a commission mandated to work on national recovery after extreme weather conditions.
Nyusi on Wednesday visited the areas severely affected by the cyclone in the country’s central province of Zambezia.
