Weʼre raising £500 to Families in Mozambique hit by Cyclone Idai : No food, no shelter, no livelihood
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Winds of more than 100mph triggered devastating floods and more than 400 people were killed, according to government sources.
Jorge said dirty water being scooped up and carried by the children from the square was for cooking and washing, not drinking, but added that her children aged three, five and seven all had diarrhoea.
Despite a huge global-aid appeal that has raised tens of millions across the world, including in the UK, many like Jorge have yet to see assistance. For their part, international aid officials have admitted they were initially blindsided by the nature of the catastrophe. They had focused their initial efforts on Beira, which the Red Cross initially thought was largely destroyed by the cyclone. They did not foresee the arrival of devastating floods that would hit huge areas of the countryside more than a day later.
