An estimate of 78 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) have been identified with vulnerabilities.

An estimated 842 were children under 18 years old. Between 13-14 November, approximately 155 individuals displaced from Macomia journeyed over 100km by foot to Muidumbe Displacement Site (Centro de Mtambalale). Owing to prevailing security concerns reported by displaced families, intentions on duration of their stay in sites and host communities remains uncertain. Movements in the region continue to be dynamic between Chai posto, Macomia Sede and Muidumbe. The objective of the Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) - Movement Alert is to collect information on large and sudden population movements, and to provide support to the humanitarian response partners by
disseminating data on IDPs to support effective humanitarian response to the affected population. Information is collected through key informants' interviews or direct observation. This alert provides basic information on displacements, and additional information can be shared upon request.
