We provide urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes.

    About the Project
  • On March 14th, 2019, Cyclone Idai made landfall near the port city of Beira in Mozambique. The cyclone moved across Mozambique and then inland, affecting parts of Malawi and Zimbabwe. The powerful storm brought widespread flooding and destruction in both countries.

  • Christian Aid responded to the cyclone in Malawi and Zimbabwe.The first phase of the humanitarian response for the Cylone Idai was supported by the Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC). From October 2020, the CA appeal programming was carried out. The programme focused more on the recovery phase of the disaster. However, early 2022 with the Cyclone Ana, gains were lost. This is particularly the case in Malawi. The cyclone affected Zimbabwe, but the effect was less severe here.
