Cyclone Idai Appeal

Cyclone Idai has caused devastation across Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe. Many hundreds are dead and nearly half a million left homeless.

Tearfund has launched an appeal as part of the Disasters Emergency Committee. Along with its church partners it is already at work in the worst affected areas.

It will be providing emergency assistance, including food, cooking utensils and shelter, as well as seeds to replant crops destroyed by the winds.


But the situation is critical and the needs of survivors are vast:
  *Around 400,000 people have lost their homes and desperately need emergency shelter;
  *There is a serious risk of waterborne diseases including Cholera;
  *The cyclone has destroyed the harvests of millions of people. They need food urgently and fresh seeds to plant for the next harvest.


Tearfund has produced a PowerPoint to help churches pray. You can download it by clicking here. You can also donate to the appeal, as well as order giving envelopes and download Gift Aid forms, by clicking here.
