The Wider Image: Lives washed away: A mother's loss in Mozambique
Maria Jofresse cannot find her two young daughters' graves, though she helped dig them herself. A single teardrop swells beneath each of her dark eyes as she recalls the moment the girls were snatched away by the fast-flowing floodwaters. It took four days to find their bodies, which were buried where Cyclone Idai had left them, far from where they lived. "I cannot recognise it anymore," the 25-year-old mother said, drying her eyes with a patch of patterned skirt at a makeshift camp of blue tarpaulin, near the riverside village of Cheia. "I cannot find them." On the night of the storm, Jofresse took shelter at her mother-in-law's house with her husband and children, a 6-month-old baby and 4-year-old girl. The next day, the river beside the village broke its banks and water rushed in. REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra SEARCH "BENSEMRA FLOOD" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
