(JNS) Following deadly Cyclone Idai that struck Mozambique, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee is providing emergency medical supplies through its partner, the Afya Foundation, and will deploy a response and assessment team, including a disaster-relief expert and field medic, to the devastated nation in the coming days.

With widespread destruction and a rising death toll, JDC activated its network of local and international partners, is assessing emerging needs and will continue to direct relief accordingly.

Earlier this week, the Israeli humanitarian-aid organization IsraAID announced that it’s planning to send a response team to Mozambique after the African country was hit by the cyclone on March 14 after days of incessant rains.
