Mosambiek, Zimbabwe en Idai sikloon

Natuurlik sal dit ons almal raak – en wie het nie simpatie met die mense wat alreeds dood is of steeds nie gevind is nie.    Simpatie aan wie reeds familielede verloor het – duidelik het Idai  groot verwoesting gesaai.
So far 200 people have been confirmed dead in the southern African country, but the death toll could be much higher.   Those who survived the disaster have had little reprieve to mourn the loss of their loved ones or salvage the little that is remaining of their belongings. They are in desperate need of food, shelter and clothing, as the BBC’s Pumza Fihlani reports from Beira.

Cyclone Idai has swept through Southern Africa, potentially killing hundreds of people and leaving widespread flooding in Mozambique.

People in cyclone-hit areas of Mozambique are clinging desperately to rooftops in areas virtually submerged by flood water, awaiting aid and rescue, the charity Save the Children has said.
Aid workers are also racing against time to save thousands of children from becoming trapped in Buzi, a district in the country’s central Sofala province that could become submerged in the next 24 hours, according to an aerial survey, the international charity said.
The survey showed that more than 50 kilometers of land in Buzi town has been submerged after a river burst its banks in the aftermath of Cyclone Idai that has devastated three countries in southern Africa.
“Thousands of children lived in areas completely engulfed by water. In many places, no roofs or treetops are even visible above the floods. In other areas, people are clinging to rooftops desperately waiting to be rescued,” said Machiel Pouw, Save the Children’s response leader in Mozambique.
