Lebanese Relief Aid for Cyclone Idai victims

16 April 2019

The third-deadliest tropical cyclone on record, killing at least 847 in total and leaving thousands stranded, Cyclone Idai left the city of Beira like a war zone.

Having no less than a hundred Lebanese owning businesses and residing in Beira with their families, H.E. Mr. Kabalan Frangieh, Ambassador of Lebanon, visited them in the disaster struck city on the 27th of March 2019.

The Ambassador met with the First Lady of Mozambique, Mrs. Isaura Nyusi and her relief team at Maputo International Airport and promised to urge the community to collect more donations to help relieve the victims of the cyclone.




The collections made are still on the increase to date. The community has so far contributed to the value of around 0.5 million US dollars in humanitarian aid to Relief Organizations, despite the fact that many of its members have suffered losses in their businesses estimated at 2.5 million US dollars. Donations were made to the local Police, the Red Cross and to First Lady Isaura Nyusi’s Social Affairs and Relief Foundation.

The Lebanese community has, over the past 30 years, contributed to the economic growth of Mozambique, and feels as an integrated part of the Mozambican community.
