Summary

TR is providing lifesaving aid to remote communities.TR is playing a key role in the aid distribution into the remote communities west of Beira. The logistics cluster has had to set up 4 forward operating bases to access the affected communities. Our teams are locating remote communities, moving to them by foot, vehicle, boat or helicopter, assessing the multi-sector needs & calling forward and distributing the aid packages. We are also providing filtration kits to provide access to fresh water.

Challenge

As set out by UN OCHA: Tropical Cyclone Idai made landfall during the night of 14 to 15 March 2019 near Beira City, Sofala Province, in central Mozambique. The cyclone brought torrential rains and winds to the region. Paul Taylor, Team Rubicon UK operations manager in Mozambique, said: "I've never seen devastation like this. I visited a community where every single one of their 5,000 homes had been destroyed and the people had no food. "

Solution

TR is providing last mile logistics to enable aid to reach the most remote affected communities as part of the cluster response effort. In addition TR is providing safe water through purification to the most remote, hard to reach survivors- these people will have received no aid in the last 2 weeks. Impact: Each water purification kit we deploy can provide safe, purified water to 2,250 beneficiaries for 4 weeks. The 6 x kits currently being deployed with our team will benefit 15,000 survivors.

Long-Term Impact

Restoring access to clean water and assisting in the coordination of the distribution of humanitarian aid through disaster mapping will provide the opportunity for communities to rebuild and recover.
