TROCAIRE: As you have heard, Cyclone Idai destroyed large parts of Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi last week and heavy rain is continuing with more forecast. People in the region were praying for rain so that their crops could grow, but what has hit them is a devastating cyclone that has destroyed everything in its path. The impact of the cyclone is enormous – they could face months of hunger as a result of the loss of crops. Bishop Crean, who is Chair of Trócaire, said they are responding to this crisis in all three countries. As well as providing immediate humanitarian relief, Trócaire will work with communities over the months and years ahead as they rebuild their lives. Your donations during this Lent will go towards helping these communities and others who are in urgent need of aid.
