20-023-SP Armed Conflict in Mozambique (Activated)
SOS Børnebyerne has submitted an alert regaring the armed conflict in Mozambique.
Since end of 2017, Cabo Delgado province (particularly the districts on the northern part) has experienced constant terrorist attacks. The attacks are motivated due to the discovery and initial process of exploring gas and oil in the region. There are more than a dozen national and international companies present in the region resettling the local communities and constructing infrastructures in preparation to the first phase of the exploration gas and oil.
