Cyclone Idai & Southern Africa flooding

Flooding and a cyclone, Idai, have caused widespread damage across Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe.

A weather system that produced heavy rains flooded parts of Malawi in early March 2019, before developing into Cyclone Idai which struck Mozambique and Zimbabwe on 14-16 March, 2019. The flooding and damage has destroyed homes and the humanitarian needs will be enormous. Beira, in central Mozambique, was the hardest hit by the cyclone, with 80 percent of the city in ruins.

In the wake of the disaster, we have established an emergency response and our teams are currently on the ground, assessing and responding to the medical and humanitarian needs, and arranging for the mass transport of essential supplies.

We are also scaling up our activities in response to cases of cholera that have been declared in Mozambique, in the weeks after the disaster; our teams are treating around 200 cases of suspected cholera per day.
