CYCLONE IDAI CRISIS UPDATES

On this page, we will collate and provide a central area where Zimbabweans can access information regarding cyclone Idai which devastated large swatches of Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe.

AOZIC along with other Zimbabwean Associations in Canada are currently working a coordinated effort to send aid to Zimbabwe. Our hopes and aims are to collect items like clothing, blankets and supplies which will be collected and shipped to aid groups directly on the ground in Zimbabwe.


CALL FOR DONATIONS FOR CYCLONE IDAI

AOZIC in collaboration with other Zimbabwean Associations in Canada will be collecting donations for aid towards Cyclone Idai.  The collected items will be shipping to Zimbabwe towards the end of the month. 

We are also doing a bottle drive to aid in the shipping of these items. If you have any bottles with refundable deposits, please feel free to drop them off at the below location as well.
