Rebuilding After Cyclone Idai
“The devastating cyclone that hit south-eastern Africa may be the worst disaster to ever strike the southern hemisphere, according to the UN. Cyclone Idai swept through Mozambique, Malawi, and Zimbabwe last month destroying almost everything in its path, causing devastating floods, killing and injuring thousands of people, and ruining crops.”- The Guardian, 2019
Hope for the Nations project, Hope Village in Malawi, runs a village complete with schools, a clinic, farming, children’s homes, and warehouses for storage. We serve thousands of families in this riverbed community.
The village itself and the surrounding communities were hit hard and needed our immediate support. In a short period of time we were able to raise over $15K to assist with the recovery efforts. There will be a long road ahead, but we are already hearing positive reports.
“Together, we have served 1985 people; over 300 families affected by the floods in our region. Most of these families have been placed in a small facility a few kilometres from where we reside. We have provided these families with maize, beans, sheets, medication, and seeds.” – Albert & Melody, Directors of Hope Village, Malawi.
Thank you to everyone who gave their support – we couldn’t have done it without you!
