A woman who was rendered homeless from the floods of the fatal cyclone that hit southern Africa last month gave birth to a baby girl while on top of a mango tree.
Single mother Amelia climbed up the tree with her 2-year-old son as the rising flood waters of Cyclone Idai hurried into her house in central Mozambique.
“I had no choice but to climb a tree, I was alone with my son. Then the pain started, and I had no one around to help me,” she told the United Nation’s children’s agency UNICEF.
