Cyclone Kenneth directly hit the communities we have been working with since 2004. All 16 villages are completely destroyed; over 80 people have lost their lives and 36,000 people are, right now, slowly starving and sleeping outside in torrential rain and many are badly injured.

We are the only NGO based in Mucojo, the worst hit region,
and the best placed to have an immediate and long-term impact.

We’re committed to help rebuild every school, clinic, water point, latrine and community centre and finally build our hospital, which is now so urgently needed.
We will not rest until this is done and the communities no longer need our support. Estamos Juntos.

Right now, we urgently need donations, however small or large, every penny will go to supporting the recovery of our communities from the horrific wake of Cyclone Kenneth.

100% of all donations will go directly to fund cyclone relief & rebuilding projects.
