On the 14 to 15 March, Cyclone Idai made landfall in central Mozambique, near Beira City, Sofala Province, leaving almost 90 percent of the city submerged in flood water.
The Cyclone brought torrential rains and winds of up to 140 km/h, and a tidal surge has cut off several villages in the area.
It is not clear how many people have died since the storm hit, also affecting Malawi and Zimbabwe. To date, it is estimated that more than 200 people have died and thousands are homeless across the three countries.
The Carmelites are working in many of these affected areas. Please keep everyone in your prayers.
