Hundreds have been killed and nearly half a million left homeless by Cyclone Idai, which tore through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe.

It has been followed by the even more powerful Cyclone Kenneth – considered to be the strongest cyclone ever to have hit Mozambique and inland Africa – causing further devastation.

Many more people have been killed and displaced by this latest cyclone. We are currently working hard to access the affected areas and assess the needs.

Tearfund is working with local partners to meet people’s most immediate needs.

We will be distributing food, cooking utensils and shelter, along with seeds to replant crops destroyed by the winds.

Your donation today will help us reach many more vulnerable people.

Thank you for your generous support.

In the event that we raise more than is needed to support these partners, your gift will be spent on similar emergency responses and to prevent the impact of disasters on other vulnerable communities.

help people affected by Cyclone Idai.
