In 2019, Cyclones Idai and Kenneth killed hundreds of people and left homes and farmland destroyed.
This area of the world is experiencing increasingly extreme weather patterns with stronger and more destructive storms, rising temperatures and winds. Since the cyclones, Oxfam and local partners have been providing communities with clean water, food assistance and hygiene kits, reaching more than 600,000 people. We are also supporting local farmers to prepare for the harsh and unpredictable weather caused by climate change.
We are now scaling up to respond to the drought in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique which has affected more than 10 million people. We have already begun providing cash in Zimbabwe so people can buy food they desperately need.
