Cyclone Idai had caused floods in central Mozambique which caused a lot of chaos. At such a time, while escaping the floods, women gave birth to a baby girl in the mango tree. She, Amélia is a single mother. She delivered the baby-girl Sara while she was clinging to the branches of the mango tree along with her 2-year-old son. This family was rescued by the neighbors after two days. These floods and cyclone may have killed about 700 people. Many bodies were seen lying in the roadside. Thousands of survivors are still missing and half of them are supposed to be children. These calamities are considered to be the worst in the last two decades.
In between all this, Amélia delivered a baby in the tree. Amélia said that she and her 2-year-old son were at home when all of a sudden water started entering inside the house. She decided to climb the tree with her son as she had no other choice. At present, she with her children is staying at the temporary accommodation camps. The family is in good health as per the reports. Such a miracle had happened before 20 years in Mozambique when a baby Rosita Mabuiango was born similarly. The then baby is now 19 years old. Her mother Sofia made international headlines after being rescued by a helicopter. Sofia had informed the local newspapers Guardian and Mail that this delivery was very painful. She said that she cried, she screamed and felt terrible. She couldn’t even understand if the pain was due to hunger or because the baby was coming.
Sofia said that many people lost almost everything in those floods but she gained her daughter. Rosita told the news sources that the government had promised about scholarships but everything was unfulfilled. She said that all her studies were being financed by her mother and no funds were received by the government. She said that the government built a house for them but it is not in good condition at all. She said that whenever there are rains, the housetop leaks.
