Cyclone Idai destroyed an entire shantytown in Beira, Mozambique. One of its former residents, Dino, witnessed his home being flooded. Swimming was the only way to escape. His wife, Marta, is now at a government-run evacuation center in the city because he and his family have nowhere else to live and no way of earning a living.
