Cyclone Idai relief is rolling in.

These images, from Triton Express in Vilankulos, shows where all the aid money and donations are going.

Triton Express are transporting (with others), the goods northwards. Their depot is the base where the Vilankulos Community Spirit Group volunteers gather to process the supplies into family-sized parcels. Then it is handed over to The Gift of the Givers, and other more impromptu organisations, for distribution, in Beira and affected surrounds.

The goods are coming from all over the place. Much of this shipment was sourced and paid for by the very same Vilankulos community group.

The people of Maputo are doing much the same thing. It’s happening in Tofo too. And many other places including South Africa and abroad.

On an even lighter note… Beira central and some areas, had power last evening, and into today. This is a big step towards coping with the current medical and humanitarian emergency going on there right now. Landlines are also working ok. As is Mcel. The others should kick in forthwith.

And although the crisis is far from over…a rainbow over Beira this morning, might give many the hope they need.

Ok, so here are those banking details once again, for the volunteer organisations on the ground…

Gift of the Givers – (Gift of the Givers, Standard Bank, Account No. 052278611, Branch Code 057525, ref: Floods)
Wings like Eagles – a charity aviation association with it’s own planes and choppers ( you can donate at http://wingslikeeagles.net)

Although the worldly community has started promising money (imagine the buearocracy), for right now, every bit is going to help.
