Re: Cyclone Idai Disaster Appeal
Cyclone Idai has hit Chimanimani District with heavy rainfall and violent winds. The rain and heavy rains are ongoing and are expected to continue for three days or so.
Houses, cars and livestock have been swept away and many people are feared dead including our own believers. Others have taken refuge in mountains and high places including some of our churches.
These are without food, clothing, blankets and or any form of livelihood. The situation is very desperate and our intervention and assistance is urgently needed.
On behalf of the servants and apostles of God professor EH Guti and Dr Eunor Guti, we are kindly requesting for your generous assistance in the form of foodstuffs, clothes, blankets and money to alleviate the situation.
The relief response is being done under ZAOGA’s own NGO called EZEKIEL GUTI DEVELOPMENT TRUST (EGUDE).
The notice goes to list the food and non-food items that can be donated, rice, mealie meal, beans, salt, sugar, matemba and cooking oil. Non-food items include clothing, blankets, soap and water containers.
