Emergency Relief for Kapasseni and Kuwangisana

Campaign Ended June 20, 2019

UPDATE: Call for help after flood and Cyclone Idai in Mozambique. By now, you have likely seen the harrowing news reports from Mozambique and the devastating impact of Cyclone Idai – which hit on the heels of major flooding last week. The majority of the main city, Beira, was destroyed and more than a million people are affected and/or displaced.We are reaching out to our supporters for help in the immediate and future need for relief, and to provide updates. Some of you have already reached out to us with donations and inquiries on how to help. Thank you. We have had regular updates from Gabriel Miandica, Perpetua Alfazema and her brother, Job, in Sena:Heavy winds and rain floods in Sena and Kapasseni have destroyed many houses and crops. Many people are without food or clean drinking water. Water-borne diseases are on the rise. The nursing students in Beira are safe and helping where they can. There is no clean water and food is in short supply. Firsthand accounts of the situation in Beira are not good. Job said it is like a “ghost city,” still in darkness, with no electricity. Finally as of April 1st there is communication in Beira.Perpetua said she has never heard of destruction like this before. If you would like to help, please donate. Thanks to your donations ,we have been able to send $10,000 USD to buy food and water treatment which will be distributed in Sena. There has been no help from emergency services so whatever we send has been critical to help until more services are available. We would like to send more funds for food as soon as possible. The Caia Connection will continue to support our work with the Kuwangisana Organization as it works in many rural impoverished areas including Kapasseni by raising emergency funds for basic necessities as food, water and water treatment, shelter, medicine and seeds.
