IsraAID is sending a response team to Mozambique in the wake of a Cyclone Idai, which tore across the country on March 14, days after incessant rains.

The Israeli humanitarian group will provide relief supplies and medical care, restore access to potable water and offer psychological support to those affected.
The United Nations reported that Cyclone Idai, which caused devastation in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe, might be the southern hemisphere's worst such disaster in history. More than 2.6 million people could be affected.  


At least 200 people are confirmed dead and predictions are that this total will reach 1,000.


In 2018, IsraAID emergency response teams reached 26,300 people worldwide.
