Cyclone Idai emergency response

Oxfam is responding to help people affected by Cyclone Idai, which hit Mozambique, as well as Malawi and Zimbabwe in March 2019. Oxfam teams are assessing the needs of the people worst affected. They are reporting extensive damage to homes and crops. Some areas have been rendered impassable with roads and bridges and phone lines having been washed away.

Oxfam is responding with water, sanitation services, food and other non-food items.

What we're doing

Oxfam started work in Mozambique in 1984, when we came to the region to help people affected by a lengthy civil war. Since the end of the conflict, our work here has focused on supporting people to make a better, fairer living. We provide vulnerable children with access to a quality education, in addition to supporting women to become more independent. Helping people to cope with the impact of HIV and AIDS is another one of our key priorities in Mozambique, since more than 16% of the sexually active population is estimated to be living with the condition.
