Cyclone Idai: UN chief calls for greater support.

  • 1

The world needs to step up support for the survivors of Tropical Cyclone Idai, the UN Secretary-General said, in a strong personal appeal as relief workers rush to provide aid to people stranded across the storm countries in southern Africa.
Describing how “deeply saddened by the loss of life and heart-wrenching images of human suffering” in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe, António Guterres on Friday also praised rescue teams ‘who have been working around the clock to save thousands of lives’ in desperately challenging conditions.
“These heroes have not only rescued families off roofs, but are also delivering food, water purification tablets and other life-saving humanitarian assistance to survivors after communities have literally been washed away,” Mr Guterres said in a statement.
