Georgia-based MAP International is responding to the needs of people in Mozambique whose lives have been devastated by Cyclone Idai.
MAP is sending 2,800 of its Disaster Health Kits (DHK) with its initial response to help prevent the spread of illness. One kit will assist a person who has been displaced from their home for up to 10 days. MAP DHKs (pictured left) include a first aid kit, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste and other essential health items.
“MAP Disaster Health Kits and health supplies will go a long way to provide comfort and meet the basic hygiene needs of people who have lost everything following this devastating cyclone,” said MAP Disaster Relief Manager, Jason Elliott.
MAP International's Disaster Response Team is also working with partner organizations in the region to ship an Interagency Emergency Health Kit (IEHK) providing medicines and medical supplies to assist 10,000 for three months. MAP is accepting donations to support those in need. Donate online at www.map.org/ (https://www.map.org/e2t/sc2/Mm-nFbj_8d6W94CTxP8TMWdMW64LSlm8tJd5rW7vvsS_5wfkF4f1FXffT13 ) cyclone-idai
