Eliseu is an 11-year-old who stopped going to school because his family can no longer afford his school fees. He sits by the border and sells Quisangua (a drink made from sugar and maize) to people travelling across. More children like him stand around in the scorching heat, hoping to sell and afford the next meal.
Drought has ransacked their lands, leaving their families in uncertainty of a future. The severity of the drought is sweeping the chances of selling anything as people no longer have the money.
Orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children are the top priority one week after Cyclone Idai tore through Mozambique. World Vision continues to rush aid workers into disaster-ravaged areas across southeast Africa to respond to the Cyclone Idai catastrophe, which has affected millions and left as many as 1,000 people dead in Mozambique.
