IdaiIntense Tropical Cyclone Idai in March was one of the worst tropical cyclones on record to affect Africa.

The Storm caused catastrophic damage in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi, leaving more than 700 people dead and many hundreds more are missing

An initial assessment in Southern Africa by one of our trained volunteers confirms that the amount of aid required to respond to will be enormous.

We are in touch with Rotary contacts in Zimbabwe and South Africa and will be working in partnership with them as the situation resolves and manageable projects are identified.

Water filters capable of handling water borne diseases, tents, tarpaulins, home repair kits, and tools are all known to be required.

Two DARTS are currently on there way with SkyHydrants.

Will you please help us to help others?
