Save the Children: Cyclone Idai Case Study 1

Water is life. Castle Water and Save the Children ensure children get the safe, clean drinking water and hygiene supplies they need to survive. Since we partnered in 2017, Save the Children’s Emergency Fund has responded to 138 emergencies and delivered lifesaving aid to 2.2 million children and their families.

Here’s just one example of how Castle Water customers and employees are helping Save the Children deliver aid to communities affected by the devastating impacts of Cyclone Idai.

Working on the ground in Cabo Delgado as a member of the COSACA consortium with other agencies, Save the Children works in close coordination with the government to support children impacted by the disaster.

Distribution activities in Ibo and Quirimbas islands proved to be extremely difficult due to lack of adequate transport, communication means and manpower to handle the different logistical component of distribution.

However, with your help, Save the Children was able to distribute emergency shelter kits, hygiene kits and dignity kits to 150 families who inhabit one of the hardest to reach Quirimbas islands in coordination with the COSACA distribution team. This ensured people had access to clean, safe drinking water and other essentials to prevent the spread of disease.

Thank you for your support
