The Church of Ireland Anglican Bishops’ Appeal has increased its emergency funding for Cyclone Idai Survivors in countries like Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi from 10,000 to 20,000 Euro notes.
In a statement, Christian Aid’s Malawi country manager Pansi Katenga said even though the rains have stopped survivors still need help to stay alive.
“Although the rains have stopped for now, they’re forecast to begin again soon, and we need to help people who are most vulnerable before the situation gets worse. The most risk are children under five, lactating mothers and pregnant women who need to keep up their nutrition,” she said.
“As Parishes and individuals continue to send in donations ,these will be added to the Bishops’ Appeal fund and sent to support Christian Aid and Tearfund partners working tirelessly on the ground.40 euro notes/45 pounds can supply a family with an emergency kit complete with hygiene items and essential food,”
