Cyclone Idai has killed 843 people and left thousands more without food, water or shelter in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe.
Whole villages are destroyed. Roads have been washed away, making it extremely difficult to access the worst-hit areas. Tens of thousands of people are displaced, with families separated. Cholera and malaria are a huge threat for the survivors, especially children.
Our partners on the ground are working together to bring emergency aid such as shelter, food, water and medicine to those in need.
Impact of Cyclone Idai
In Mozambique alone, 446 people are dead, more than 1,500 are injured, and over 58,000 homes have been damaged. Entire villages have been submerged in flood waters and thousands were stranded in trees or on rooftops.
In Zimbabwe, many people are sleeping out in the open. They need tents, blankets, food and clothing. Schools have also been severely damaged.
Meanwhile, families in Malawi have lost homes, crops and livestock. Many people are now staying in emergency camps, and face months of food and water insecurity ahead.
