Fundraise for the Cyclone Idai Appeal | ActionAid UK

Cyclone Idai has caused widespread death and destruction across southern Africa. It “might be the southern hemisphere’s worst such disaster”, according to the UN

The cyclone made landfall on Thursday 14th March and has completely devastated whole regions of Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi. 

More than 2.6 million people could be affected, with 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. 

Will you organise a fundraising activity with your friends, school or colleagues to help raise money for those most affected by the disaster?


Yes, I want to fundraise
