Tropical Cyclone Idai was one of the worst tropical cyclones on record to affect Africa causing catastrophic damage in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Malawi and leaving more than 1,300 people dead. Soon after it struck in April, Anglican Missions launched an appeal for the Diocese of Niassa in Northern Mozambique – one of the areas most affected. Money raised was used to procure seeds and plants to assist with the spring harvest. Bishop Vicente of Niassa Diocese personally helped distribute seeds and continued to visit, provide pastoral care and take services in isolated parts of the Diocese that had been affected. Bishop Vicente has expressed his extreme gratitude to all those who generously supported our Appeal.
While we will now close the Anglican Missions emergency appeal, there is still much to be done as communities recover and rebuild. If you would still like to make a donation, please support our partner, Christian World Service (CWS). Information on its appeal can be found here:
We will shortly provide a summary of how money raised through our emergency appeal has been used. Thank you so much from the Anglican Missions team.
