Mozambique Cyclone response

News and Press Release
Originally published
Direct Relief International is now making diligent inquiries in cyclone-lashed Mozambique to determine if any emergency medical supplies are needed at this time. When the cyclone hit, more than 200,000 people had already been displaced from their homes by the country's worst flooding in half a century. USAID reports that at this time, existing staff and supplies appear to be sufficient to treat current levels of cholera, malaria and measles. Direct Relief always ships its emergency supplies based on specific needs lists provided by hospitals and clinics in the affected areas to ensure that no unwanted goods are sent, and that the most pressing needs are the first to be addressed.
