Cyclone Idai struck Mozambique on March 14, killing more than 600 people, injuring more than 1,600, and leaving nearly two million in need of humanitarian assistance. Flash floods and mudslides caused by the storm destroyed 90% of Beira, a coastal city in Mozambique.
Humanity & Inclusion is on the ground, helping survivors. Emergency logistics colleagues are reinforcing capacity and working to open access points to rural areas shut off from humanitarian aid. For example, our team is coordinating debris removal from roads in the Mahavana area, which has received little to no support with clearance since the cyclone. To help minimize the risk of spreading cholera, our team is distributing hygiene kits, which include basic items such as hand and laundry soaps, to 8,000 families.
Humanity & Inclusion has 40 staff in the country, with a growing team in Beira. Our staff members are extremely concerned for the welfare of people–especially those with disabilities, older people, and vulnerable individuals–who have not yet been reached.
Help ensure aid reaches people with disabilities, injuries, and vulnerable victims of this disaster.
