MAPUTO, July 16 (Xinhua) -- The National Institute for Disaster Management of Mozambique (INGC) announced Thursday that a shelter in Lichinga, the capital city of the northern province Niassa, will soon be open to accommodate those people displaced by terrorist attacks in the neighboring province Cabo Delgado.

The institution has already installed running water in the "accommodation center" and the construction of eight sanitation facilities is underway, said Faride Taibo, Head of Planning at INGC in Niassa, in an interview with Radio Mozambique.

Niassa province currently hosts around 200 families who fled the province of Cabo Delgado in districts including Lichinga, Lago and Maua, said the official.

He said INGC has also started an awareness campaign as some families tend to resist to move from their current foster families, mostly homes of their relatives, to the accommodation center.

The provincial capital of Cabo Delgado, and its neighboring provinces Nampula and Niassa are among the main destinations for the displaced people who fled the violence and terror to seek shelters. Enditem
