Votre environnement de travail

Cabo Delgado province, is one of the most vulnerable and poverty-stricken provinces of Mozambique, has been affected since late 2017 by armed conflict perpetrated by Non-state armed groups which continued to destabilise pockets of territory.

As of 2023, the conflict had displaced over 1 million people. At least 2 million people are estimated to require immediate humanitarian assistance and protection in Cabo Delgado and in neighbouring provinces of Niassa and Nampula. Many of these people live in overcrowded camps across the affected provinces, with little access to food, safe drinking water, healthcare, or education. Furthermore, the humanitarian access situation for aid and assistance delivery in northern Mozambique is challenging, mostly due to insecurity, operational constraints to reach affected populations due logistics obstacles, limited financial resources, and bureaucratic administrative burdens for humanitarian organisations.

Humanitarian needs among conflict-affected populations in Cabo Delgado are wide-ranging and span all of ACF’s traditional sector of expertise, including Food Security & Livelihoods, Nutrition & Health, Mental Health and Psychosocial Support and WASH, which have been prioritized as part of our emergency strategy in partnership with local and international NGOs already present to support the emergency response in the area. ACF has a base in Pemba covering several districts of Cabo Delgado (with sub-office in Macomia) and a base in Mueda.
