Challenge

Cyclone Idai is being called one of the worst weather-related disasters to ever hit southern Africa. 1.85 million people are in need. Right now, more than 400,000 people in Mozambique are displaced, and many of them have lost everything. There are 1 million people without electricity and 1.2 million acres of crops flooded. There is such a great need for support, which is why WCK has activated #ChefsForMozambique.

Solution

World Central Kitchen's Chef Relief Team arrived in Beira, Mozambique shortly after Cyclone Idai devastated the region. The team found a kitchen in an event banquet hall that could be cleaned, repaired, and used to cook. By mobilizing the local community, we were able to quickly get the kitchen up and running, delivering hundreds of meals on the first day. By day two, the team was serving thousands. As long as there is a need for people to eat, we will be there.

Long-Term Impact

Chef-prepared, quality meals for the people of Mozambique will provide essential nourishment while also restoring hope. World Central Kitchen's unique approach comes from our chefs, who provide nutritious meals designed specifically for the affected region. We prepare community favorites with ingredients purchased from the local economy. Additionally, we work to uplift and empower the community to come back stronger after a disaster.
