Between the two landfalls of Cyclone Idai, approximately 2.6 million people have been affected across Mozambique, Madagascar, Malawi, South Africa and Zimbabwe. The high winds and severe flooding left a trail of destruction, with hundreds of deaths and hundreds of thousands displaced across the five countries. The UN called the cyclone “one of the worst weather-related catastrophes in the history of Africa.” With the first cases of cholera confirmed, Mozambique now faces a potential “second disaster” as more than a quarter-million displaced people live in squalid conditions without clean water and sanitation.
The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP), with generous support from The UPS Foundation, is hosting a webinar, "Cyclone Idai: Responding to an International Crisis." Speakers will provide updates on the situation, including response efforts, and share ways to support recovery.
