On March 14 Cyclone Idai devastated much of central Mozambique and parts of Zimbabwe and Malawi. In addition to the growing number of dead and homes destroyed, cases of Cholera have risen from 5 on March 27 to over 1000 by April 2 and over 4700 by April 11. In addition over 700,000 Hectares of crops ready to harvest have been destroyed!
The Rotary Club of Grand Bend’s Global Literacy Committee is preparing a 40’ sea container for shipment to the Rotary Club of Donda, near Beira Mozambique. Rotary Clubs will distribute the goods to those in most need. Container and Shipping costs will be $10000. Container will be loaded in Cambridge in early May and will include:
