It is so sad...
I was born in Uganda and spent the first 10 years of my life in Malawi. I called this place home. Some of my heart and soul live in the soil of this amazing troubled land.
The IDAI cyclone made landfall on Friday 15th March and has completely devastated whole regions of Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi.
More than 2.6 million people are affected and in need of immediate assistance, with potentially thousands of lives lost and many more homes and livelihoods completely destroyed. Many lives are still at risk, as heavy winds and rains, flash flooding and mudslides continue in the wake of the cyclone. The scale of the devastation is as yet unknown. Some areas are completely cut off due to flooding, many regions are entirely without power, food or clean water and almost every communications network has been damaged.
All proceeds from this pattern will go to ActionAid.
