Cyclone Idai, the storm that has killed hundreds of people, submerged homes and battered cities in southeastern Africa, may prove to be one of the worst weather-related disasters ever in the Southern Hemisphere, a United Nations official said on Tuesday (NY times).
A group of residents of the town of Tofo Mozambique, including members of the Nhatofo Lifesaving association (Nhatofo Salva-vidas is a non profit association incorporated in Mozambique whose mission is to train Mozambican lifeguards, raise water awareness and keep local beaches safe) of which I (Ghizlaine Zouhir) am a managing member, have come together to bring relief to the victims of cyclone IDAI south of Beira area. We are organizing food, clothes and first aid goods to be delivered to where they are most needed.
One 3.5t truck load has already been distributed to the village of Mitxula and another is getting ready to head north in the next couple of days. Our team is busy with
(i) collecting donations in the form of food, clothes, medications, mosquito nets and money
(ii) preparing family packs covering basic needs (maize meal, beans, salt, sugar, water sanitation kits, soap, mozzie nets etc)
(iii) transportation by truck and by boat to cut off villages
(iv) identifying new needs in particular for reconstruction and launching of crops.
We will send as many loads as our fundraising efforts can get us.
