3 million people affected and still at risk

In March of this year, Cyclone Idai triggered a massive disaster in southern Africa. A month later, the region was devastated further when Cyclone Kenneth hit. The scale of the damage was unprecedented, with 3 million people in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe impacted by severe flooding – around half of them children.

Torrential rain and strong winds have damaged homes, schools and hospitals leaving hundreds of thousands of people in critical need of support. A cholera outbreak in Mozambique has further increased the danger for children.

Unicef is on the ground delivering essential supplies and services, but we need your help to reach children and families in danger. Please donate now.

 

How will my donation help children?

Unicef is already on the ground, providing essential supplies and support and saving lives. To prevent the cholera outbreak from growing, we are ensuring families have access to clean water and are helping to distribute almost 1 million vaccines.

While Unicef’s emergency preparedness ensured that plans and supplies were in place before the cyclone hit, we urgently need more support, so we can continue our work protecting children now and in days to come.

By donating today, you can help us respond for children and families with life-saving support. Please donate now.

 

For the first 12 months, all monthly donations through this appeal will go to children affected by cyclones in southern Africa. After that, they will go to our Children’s Emergency Fund so Unicef can help protect children whenever disaster strikes. In the unlikely event that the funds raised exceed funding requirements for this appeal, your gift will also go to our Children’s Emergency Fund.
