Text: This is what teamwork looks like. This Beira, Mozambique football team is helping turn their field into a treatment center for cholera.
A cholera outbreak has been declared here after Cyclone Idai tore through the area followed by massive flooding.
Soundbite: The cyclone came in a way that we did not expect. It has affected everyone. It destroyed almost everything, including some houses. My name is Sílvia Emília Augusto. I like to play football because… hey, it was my dream since I was a child.
Soundbite: As an athlete, my dream is to play for Mozambique's national team. I also want to be like the football player Marta. I do want to meet her.
Text: Up to 100 cholera patients can be treated at one time on the team’s football field. It’s hot out and some of their homes have been damaged.
Text: But that’s not stopping this team from coming together to respond to the emergency.
Soundbite: I am happy to help, happy to be part of the project. I am learning many things too, and so are my teammates.
