Cyclone Idai hit the coast of Mozambique on March 14, 2019, and caused extensive damage.
In Mozambique alone the provinces of Sofala and Zambezia were significantly affected with the port city of Beira nearly completely submerged.
In Mozambique 1.8 million people are in need of help, 69,000 people had to go to shelters and there have been more than 6,000 cases of cholera. Fortunately the cholera outbreak has now been stopped.
On top of this, Cyclone Kenneth hit the north of the country in April and left 340,000 people in need.
In Malawi, cyclone Idai affected 922,000 people and 125,000 people were left homeless in the south of the country. In Zimbabwe although the impact was not as severe as in Malawi and Mozambique, hundreds of people were killed and thousands are in need of help, particularly in Chimanimani.
