Victims of terror attacks by Islamic militants in the northern province of Cabo Delgado in Mozambique have received $121,000 (£90,000) donation from Pope Francis.

The donation was in response to an appeal by the Bishop of Pemba, Luis Fernando Lisboa, for assistance to thousands of people displaced from their homes by attacks by Islamist militants.

The militants have been carrying out gruesome attacks in the gas-rich province since 2017. About 430,000 have been left homeless in the conflict.

Bishop Lisboa has been heading the “Together for Cabo Delgado” campaign.

He told reporters that the pope’s donation would be used to build health facilities in areas where displaced people are camping, particularly in the districts of Montepuez and Chiure.

A delegation from the Episcopal Conference of Southern Africa visited Cabo Delgado last week at Bishop Lisboa’s invitation. It called for an urgent solution to the insecurity in the region and support for the displaced people.
