What is the Cyclone Appeal?
Earlier this year, Cyclone Idai ripped through Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi, flooding communities, killing an estimated 1000 and making tens of thousands homeless. Just five weeks later, Cyclone Kenneth hit Mozambique.
“I had to grab my three-week old grandson as I thought he would drown. We ran to the school for shelter and had to stay there for four days. We have lost everything – our clothes, the babies’ clothes, utensils, documents.” Anita Lopez Paulo in Tica, Mozambique
CAFOD is supplying safe, clean water, hygeine kits and emergency supplies including tarpaulins, shelter, latrines, and some of the basics of life – soap, towels, pants, and sanitary pads – to thousands of people.
Christine Allen, CAFOD’s Director, said:
“The more we see and hear of the destruction caused by Cyclone Idai, the more shocking is the devastating impact on the lives of children, women, and men. Reports from the ground tell us of entire villages submerged and whole families missing.
“But there are still lives to be saved, and communities who need our help. We cannot delay reaching those in urgent need.”
