Cyclone Idai ripped through eastern Zimbabwe three months ago, after striking Mozambique and Malawi. On Monday, a top U.N. official for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief said Zimbabweans in the storm-hit areas are still struggling to get food and medicine.

Ursula Mueller said Monday the situation in the cyclone-hit areas of Zimbabwe is still “devastating and distressing.”

The U.N. relief official said people are still food insecure and cannot access basic health care.

“This is particularly distressing for people living with HIV who face a double dilemma of being unable to access drugs. Even if they can access them, not be being able to absorb them on an empty stomach,” she said.
