Update from our CEO David Wightwick (pictured centre), who is currently in Beira Mozambique 

In the aftermath of Cyclone Idai, myself and Rachel Fletcher have joined a DFID team supporting the health response in Mozambique. I am working currently with WHO in Beira and others on the DFID team (including Jon Barden, Dave Phillips and Pete Skelton pictured) are supporting with assessments and planning for the health response.

At this point its unlikely there will be a UK EMT full deployment, but we are looking at how we can best support the next steps of the health response and we’ll keep you posted with developments.
