UN has said the cyclone had displaced about 110,000 people, forcing them to take shelter in camps across central Mozambique.
More than 17,500 houses were damaged by the cyclone.
Turkish Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD), the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA), National Medical Search Team (UMKE) and Search and Rescue Association (AKUT) have been providing support and distributing humanitarian aid in the region.
The cyclone has washed away crops and roads have been damaged across the three south African countries.
Many areas in Mozambique remain without electricity, and almost all networks have been severely damaged, according to the UN.
