More than 1,000 people are feared dead in a devastating cyclone that hit Mozambique.
Residents of the devastated port city of Beira, where the Pungwe and Busi rivers flow into the sea, have had no communications since Idai hit. Many families have been frantically trying to get information about their relatives, but with no phones or internet access, no electricity and great chunks of the main road into Beira washed away and blocked by flooding, all they can do is wait.
Despite the difficulty of getting much-needed supplies, equipment, rescue teams and other people into the area, some humanitarian organisations managed to fly in and begin taking stock of the damage.
Rain had been falling for a full week before Cyclone Idai made landfall on March 4, 2019. By the time the cyclone (hurricane) struck, there was no place for the water to go, so it spread, laterally. One such inland “river” was reportedly 31 miles wide, carrying along and depositing millions of tons of mud and debris.
We are trying to help those victims by providing food and medicine. And give money to construct houses.Anyone can help those victims.
