Dear Friends,

A natural disaster strikes and all of a sudden people who only a while ago were enjoying their normal lives are left with nothing but a feeling of despair. Nearly 1,000 people are feared dead across Mozambique, Malawi, and Zimbabwe as Cyclone Idai made landfall on March 14 and about 2.6 million people are affected.

Malteser International's relief teams are now in Mozambique and are responding to the emergency. However, our biggest concern is to ensure that those who have survived are not faced with the disaster of diseases like cholera. We must act quickly!
