Devotional Subject: Disasters

Since March 14, Tropical Cyclone Idai and resulting flooding have claimed more than 1,000 lives in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi. Some 361,000 people remain displaced to temporary camps. An aggressive vaccination campaign is underway to stop the spread of cholera (cases as of April 9: 4,072 with seven deaths). The UCC has begun its early response and planning for recovery with partners. Thus far, $62,000 has been provided to address the needs.
