MCF gives £45K grant to Cyclone Idai victims

Masonic Charitable Foundation gives Plan International UK a £45,000 emergency grant to help with their relief efforts.

Thousands of people across Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe, whose lives have been devastated by Cyclone Idai, will be given access to clean water, tarpaulins, plastic sheets and other emergency supplies thanks to the grant.

Cyclone Idai is believed to have killed 750 people in the three countries, with close to a million people being impacted and at risk from rising flood waters, with nearly half a million affected being children.

The grant will provide jerry cans, water purification tablets and buckets to thousands of people who have lost everything and are at risk of potentially deadly waterborne diseases.

David Innes, Chief Executive at Masonic Charitable Foundation, said: “Cyclone Idai has devastated the lives of many thousands of people, with, as usual, women and children bearing the brunt of the suffering. I’m very pleased that the Masonic Charitable Foundation was able to move so quickly and provide funds for Plan International UK’s vital work at the heart of the disaster zone.”
