Finn Church Aid (FCA) has allocated 50,000 euros from its disaster fund to support the victims of cyclone Idai in Mozambique and Zimbabwe. At least 500,000 people have lost their homes and harvests.

The 50 000 euros will be directed to affected areas through ACT Alliance and local partners.

“We have started to provide aid with our local partners. The storm has caused widespread damage and people are in immediate need of water, food, sanitary products and kitchen utensils”, says Eija Alajarva, Head of Humanitarian Assistance at FCA.

“People living in the affected areas have lost everything; their homes, harvests and cattle.”

Aid will be allocated to 5000 households in Mozambique; to women, children, sick and elderly in particular, as well as to families in Zimbabwe.
