1.5 million children are in danger

Cyclone Idai has triggered a massive disaster in southern Africa. 3 million people in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe are impacted by flooding – around half of them children.

While the cyclone itself has passed, the damage it has caused has left around 1.5 million children in danger. Homes have been destroyed forcing people into temporary camps, electricity and water supplies have been cut, and thousands of girls and boys are still missing.

Cholera outbreak

In Mozambique, the government has confirmed over 1400 cases of cholera – a figure that is expected to rise in coming days. If untreated cholera can be deadly, and this outbreak is putting thousands of children and their families at risk.

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 Cyclone Idai and the floods 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.
