“We have just returned from delivering 14 tonnes of donated food parcels, clothing and medical care in Mozambique on the 28th March as part of a team of collaborators with #midnighttraintobeira volunteers.

What we witnessed over there was beyond heart-breaking.  People are destitute, reports are coming in of a cholera break out, babies are orphaned and starving, and women have the added burden of menstruation without sanitary aid.

Help has not reached many yet. It is evident that there is need to get more involved as citizens and neighbours to assist disaster relief organisations and governments on the ground to reach out to more survivors,” says Rejoice Nxumalo, Chairperson of SAAI.
