What is our funding objective?

On March 15th, 2019 tropical cyclone Idai struck Mozambique and several other countries in Africa causing widespread flooding and destruction across the southeast corner of the continent. Cyclone Idai was a Category 3 tropical cyclone which has destroyed over 90% of Beira’s facilities, including homes, hospitals and schools. In the wider region, 1,7 million people were affected by the cyclone. There is an ongoing lack of clean water, food and shelter, worsened by outbreaks of cholera and malaria, not in the least caused by additional heavy rains from cyclone Kenneth.

Why do we fund this investment?

FMO aims to be the preferred partner for local prosperity. FMO generally does not provide 100% grants but looking at the magnitude of the disasters, FMO’s MB felt it is suitable to support the recovery of the local communities via our clients.
