DB BILL'S CALL TO ACTION: SHELTERBOX HELPS FAMILIES HIT BY HURRICANE

ShelterBox USA support is urgently needed. Cyclone Idai has left tens of thousands of families in D9210 (Malawi) with nowhere to call home. Emergency shelter is desperately needed. A ShelterBox response team is in Malawi and met with District Governor Hutch Mthinda and PDG Stallard Mpata on Friday evening to discuss plans.


The team is now in Chikwawa, one of the worst-hit districts of southern Malawi. ShelterBox USA has a designated Cyclone Idai fund to directly help those affected. To donate please visit
