Supporting the victims of Cyclone Idai in Mozambique

2019.4.18

One month has passed since Cyclone Idai ravaged southeast Africa affecting people in Mozambique, Malawi, Madagascar, and Zimbabwe. With high winds up to 205 km/hr and heavy rain causing flooding, the cyclone killed over 600 people in Mozambique and caused an estimated USD 770 million in damages. An estimated 400,000 were displaced from their homes as the storm destroyed homes, schools, and other buildings.

Peace Winds Japan will be sending an emergency response team to Beira and Chimoio, two of the areas hit hardest. After a needs assessment, Peace Winds Japan will provide relief items that would make the biggest impact for the victims. The victims will require tools to rebuild their homes and cookware to provide food for their families.
