Hundreds of people remain missing and some of the worst-affected communities remain without any help. In some instances, communities have been forced to rescue friends and loved ones from mud and rubble with their bare hands. The storm is worsening many existing challenges in these countries. For example, in Malawi, the destruction caused by the storm threatens to exacerbate a cholera resurgence.
All donations to the Cyclone Freddy Relief Fund will support relief and recovery efforts in all affected countries. Initially, the fund helps first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, medicine, and shelter. As needs emerge, we will support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations in the impacted area.
How Your Donation Will Be Used
When you donate to GlobalGiving's Tropical Cycle Freddy Relief Fund, your donation will be used to:
- Provide food and emergency medical supplies to people
- Support temporary relief and emergency supplies for displaced families
- Support recovery and rebuilding efforts in the region
- Meet other needs that emerge from the impacted communities
