Cyclone Ava Update 3

Many people in Madagascar are now forced to use boats to navigate the streets as waters keep rising in Masikampy, Maindrivazo. Maindrivazo, which sits on the Mahajilo river is about 220 miles West of the coast where cyclone Ava hit on Friday. Its devastating impact is just becoming clear.

Cyclone Ava Update 2

Unfortunately, Madagascar was again hit by a cyclone on Friday. The east suffered from a lot of rain and very strong winds. At the time of writing, the official figures are more than 100,000 homeless, 29 dead and 22 missing. Four of the five main roads on the island have been closed since Friday due to various landslides, washed-out bridges and flooded roads.

Cyclone Enawo Report 2017

In the aftermath of Cyclone Enawo, HoverAid worked with the villages along the Rianila River that were decimated by flooding. We distributed 4.5 tonnes of rice and emergency food supplies for 200 families, 20 carpentery kits, 30 fishing kits and vegetable, seed and sweet potato plants for 200 families.

HoverAid also constructed a vital bridge and re-roofed the local school.

Thank you for your donations, prayers and words of encouragement. A special thanks to disaster relief NGO Wings Like Eagles who’s very early donation of £5000 enabled a rapid HoverAid response to the emergency.

Cyclone Enawo Update 6

Your donations are saving communities. Thank you.

We have begun distributing tools for a number of carpenters, so that the rebuilding of houses can begin. The tarpaulins we have distributed have been very well received: these villages are situated on the edge of the rain forest and it rains here most days.

Peter, Tantely, and James are now pushing north from Moramanga towards Ambatondrazaka on Lac Alaotra an area we understand was badly affected by the cyclone and the deluge of rain it dropped.
