BBF Update: Responding to Cyclone Idai – Malawi, Mozambique & Malawi

Brother’s Brother Foundation (BBF) is partnering with several organizations to address the needs created by Cyclone Idai in East Africa. With longstanding partners in all three affected nations (Mozambique, Zimbabwe, & Malawi) BBF is uniquely positioned to navigate this challenging situation. Brother’s Brother is partnering with Union College’s IRR program which has Surgeons and EMT’s currently on the ground in Malawi providing medical aid. BBF is providing the group with much-needed medications and medical supplies through a local vendor. Also in Malawi, BBF is working with Mulange Mission Center and Mulange Hospital to provide emergency relief to the surrounding community that was devastated by flooding. In Zimbabwe, BBF is working with Mutambara Hospital where the severely injured are being treated. While telecommunications remain unstable throughout the affected area, BBF has been able to make contact with partners in both Zimbabwe and Malawi. That has not been the case in Mozambique. Many of the facilities have sustained damage and the situation is straining resources. Brother’s Brother will be working with medical facilities in all three nations as they rebuild following the storm.
