Last month, Cyclone Idai devastated southeastern African nations of Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi. The World Bank has estimated more than $2 billion will be needed for recovery. Mozambique’s $337 million humanitarian response plan, largely made up of an appeal for $281 million after the cyclone hit, was only 23% funded as of April 15, 2019.
