A Harare based Christian organisation, Miracle Mission, has launched an urgent appeal for donations to victims of a tropical storm that has led to the death of at least 28 people and displacement of several others in Manicaland.
Chimanimani district is so far the hardest hit by Cyclone Idai, which has brought torrential rain and destruction of infrastructure, leaving at least 70 people missing.
Miracle Mission said it was mobilising non-perishable food suppliers, diapers, clean water, toiletries, medical supplies, clothes and basic rations for the displaced people, especially children who would be more susceptible to water borne diseases.
“Those who are in Harare can drop their donations at Miracle Mission Presbyterian church 112 Enterprise Road, Highlands, at the Eat Out Movement on 3 Alan Wilson Avenue Greater Avenues and Once Church 15 De Noon Rd Avodale use contact number 0779 163 400.
“Those in Bulawayo can drop off their donations at Centre for Innovation and Technology (CITE) at 45 Moffatt Avenue in Hillside or contact Zenzele Ndebele on 0773 103 262.”
Cyclone Idai has also left a trail of destruction in neighbouring Mozambique and Malawi
