Thousands are at risk after Cyclone Kenneth struck Mozambique, barely a month after the destruction wrought by Cyclone Idai.
At least 921 people were killed by Idai and now southern Africa is in further danger after Kenneth, the biggest ever recorded cyclone in the southern hemisphere, made landfall on 26th April 2019.
We're assessing the options to respond to this new disaster, with flash floods, landslides and storm surges expected in the coming days.
The impact of Idai
Around 1.5 million children have been affected by Cyclone Idai and in Mozambique alone, thousands of people are still missing.
Many children lost loved ones to the floods or were separated from their families. They're also particularly vulnerable to deadly diseases like cholera and malaria in these dangerous conditions.
They need the basics to survive — food, water and shelter. But they also need our support in recovering and rebuilding their lives.
Our teams are on the ground in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi, fighting to protect children as the full scale of this disaster unfolds. But none of this is possible without your support.
