Mozambique: Cyclone Idai

Snapshot

Cyclone Idai made landfall on 15 March in the city of Beira located in Central Mozambique. The cyclone wreaked havoc on Beira and its surrounding areas, resulting in significant damage and destruction to shelter and settlements, health, water and sanitation facilities, as well as large swathes of crops.

This appeal will enable the Mozambique Red Cross and IFRC to support 200,000 of the most vulnerable people for 24 months. The operation will include support in shelter, health, water, sanitation and hygiene promotion, and livelihoods and basic needs.
