In March 2019, Cyclone Idai tore through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe. Hundreds of people were killed and nearly half a million left homeless after strong winds and flooding.

In the days and weeks after the cyclone hit, Tearfund’s local partners distributed food, cooking utensils and shelter, along with seeds to replant crops destroyed by the winds.

One year later, much of southern Africa is facing severe droughts, making it harder for people to rebuild their lives.

We’re still working to meet people’s basic needs and help communities to be better prepared for future disasters.
