Hundreds of thousands of people have lost their homes, belongings and crops following cyclones, heavy rains and floods that battered Mozambique, Madagascar, Zimbabwe and several other Southern African countries since February. Continuing bad weather has already washed away one harvest and left the ground too soggy for the March-April planting.
