Madagascar Cyclone & Flood Response
Cyclone Cheneso hit Madagascar on the northern coast from January 19th to the 23rd 2023, causing devastating damage to infrastructure such as houses and schools. The strong winds and heavy rainfall disrupted transportation by cutting off several national roads, making it difficult for people to get around. Tragically, the storm resulted in at least 138 fatalities and the destruction of hundreds of homes. Approximately 130,000 people have been displaced as a result.
90,870 people affected
STATUS OF RESPONSE: IN PROGRESS
We are partnering with Mercy Ministries Madagascar. We will be supporting over 40 families with a month's worth of various aid items, which include food and hygiene products, water purifying tablets, seeds to plant, mosquito nets, and blankets. We are also providing financial aid, which will be used to assist the people with transport, roof & house repair, solar lighting and more.
